Instructor Profile - Nicol Paton

Nicol was born and brought up in Aberdeenshire and has fly fished for salmon for over 20 years on many different rivers throughout Scotland, including the Spey, Ness, Shin, Carron and Dee to name a few. Nicol has an intimate knowledge of all of these rivers and in particular, the River Dee and its surrounding areas. He has caught salmon across its length and breadth, these experiences mean he understands where the taking lies are and which beats and pools provide the best chance of a fish depending on the time of year and conditions.

Nicol has been involved with training, development and sports coaching across different disciplines and industries to a very high standard for over 17 years and holds his Scottish Game Anglers Instructor Certificate for double handed rods, along with numerous other teaching and coaching qualifications. His main focus is making sure his clients have the best experience possible by providing a very high level of service. Nicol is also a ghillie on the lower River Dee.
