Previously a head ghillie on the middle Tay, Jock is now offering his renowned services to a wider audience throughout Scotlandís finest salmon rivers and productive salmon fishing beats.
Jock had the benefit of being a student and great friend of the late and legendary expert ghillie Willie Laird (Newtyle Ghillie from 1934 to 1984) throughout the 70s and early 80s and learned much of his river craft under the watchful and detailed eye of his mentor. Jock prides himself on his salmon fishing guiding abilities and communication skills in teaching the Spey cast to beginners and fine-tuning the technique of more experienced Spey casters.
Jock stands alone in his field as an environmental improvement pioneer and featured in the SEPA View (Scottish Environmental Protection Agency) Autumn 2008 magazine highlighted some of his fine work. Jock was a founder member and instigator of the Tay Western Catchment Project (1,017 miles of habitat restoration in the Tay's headwaters) and effectively pushed hard for a more suitable Catch & Release policy to be implemented on the River Tay in 2008 to preserve Scottish salmon fishing for the future. Jock has appeared many times on television and in the media with his various salmon fishing related projects and initiatives and recently featured prominently on the BBC's Alba channel, on the 'Turus a Bhradain' (the salmon journey) series of programmes.
In 2005 Jock Monteith launched his own brand of Spey casting products, 'The Monteith', which has broken fresh ground in the Spey casting industry. The Monteith salmon Spey casting fly lines have become an established brand due to innovative and cleverly thought-out products and are now used on many Scottish salmon rivers and endorsed by many salmon fishers and professional ghillies.
