Visited in May, 2003, 2004 and 2005 for brown trout.
Our first trip to South Uist for salmon and sea trout, end of August. Eighteen of us, 7 lochs to try, plus some brownie fishing.
Eighteen again this year. Some good fishing to be had.
A reduced party of 10 this year. Made perming five lochs from seven nice and easy though! Monday was a bit of a write-off due to 40 mph winds. Tuesday was no better. Friday was very wet – so photos are mostly from Wed/Thurs.
Party of 12. Fishing was hard and personally cut short. However, a magical spell on Fada with some fresh wee sea trout saved our bacon.
Loch Langabhat is about 7 miles long, with many bays, islets and skerries. It took half an hour in an Argocat to reach it. It is mostly fished later in the season for salmon and sea trout. The brownies responded well to wets, dries, lures and dap.
Loch Trealabhal sits at the top of the Laxay River, and is therefore the estate’s main salmon and sea trout loch later in the year. It isn’t so much one loch as many interconnected lochs. The boat was housed on one of these – Loch nam Faoileag. Our day started calm for wild brownies, requiring a bit of dry fly work. When a breeze got up later, the usual stuff worked well.
