Gle­nea­gles Glory

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - First Cast -

GUESTS WHO book sal­mon fish­ing dur­ing their stay at the fa­mous Gle­nea­gles Ho­tel are to re­ceive a fly tied by ho­tel gillie Wil­lie Mc­cutcheon. The Gle­nea­gles Glory has a cop­per tin­sel body, gold rib, buck­tail tail, and Arc­tic fox wing with flash. Colours were in­spired by the ho­tel's plush in­te­rior. What a good idea. Surely ev­ery ho­tel or es­tate should give guests a be­spoke fly. There is a sting in the tail, how­ever. Bed and break­fast at the Royal Lochna­gar suite will set you back £3,780 per night this month, al­though you can lie in a com­fort­able stan­dard dou­ble room for £590. Gle­nea­gles of­fers guests fly-fish­ing on its trout lochs and ar­ranges days on the nearby Tay. A chauf­feur drives you to the hut.

The Glory: its colours may suit a spring cast.
