Fly Fishing Trips & Fishing Holidays in Northumberland and the Scottish Borders

Welcome to Chasing Fins with James Armstrong

James Armstrong chased & pursued his dream of being a guide, instructor and having his own business and in 2006 his dream came true and he started his business ‘Chasing Fins’. This has taken him all over the world, guiding in places like New Zealand, America, Scotland, Russia and his home country England. Whenever free time became available James loved his saltwater fishing and visited Australia and Cuba quite frequently to chase his favourite saltwater species.

The North East of England (Northumberland) and Scottish Borders was always a big playground for James. Spoilt for choice with rivers, lakes and the coastline James soon got a superb reputation for catching and guiding for salmon, sea trout & brown trout on all his local rivers.

Chasing Fins is proudly sponsored by a few of the biggest and best brands in the fishing and outdoor business. A few of which include Guide Fly Fishing, Costa Sunglasses, Sage, RIO, Caledonian flies and many more.
