Twelve of us this year. Fishing the poorest by far – 9 sea trout and no salmon between us!
Jimmy, Dougie, Alex and me this time. Fishing decent, given it was late June and the temperature was never above 11°C.
Twelve of us again for 2014. The fishing was hard, not helped by having 3 cloudless days Monday-Wednesday. However, if you were on the right water on the right day, there were fish to be caught.
Photos taken while staying at Soval Lodge, Isle of Lewis. This was a 4-day trip to Lewis with Stan Headley to investigate the potential development of the brown trout fishing on the Soval Estate. Michael Mackenzie was our ghillie on the first 2 days, taking us out in the Argocat to reach the far-flung waters.
Donnie Whiteford came across to join us for the day, though the wee boat was a bit cramped for 3, and Donnie mostly fished the bank, on this very picturesque loch. Pity about the rubbish dumped and cages abandoned by salmon farmers!
