    Have you never heard of the sport of 'swim trolling' ;-)

    Seriously - I'll get back to you as soon as I hear back.

    Ah I see, may be troublesome trying to troll without a boat! I'll check in with Ledmore then.

    Thanks for your reply

    Hi Graeme

    I think AAG no longer have a boat on Veyatie but will confirm with them and report back.

    It looks like Ledmore do have a boat:

    Ideally we should add Ledmore fishing to this site (along with a general overhaul) - if we could get the resources to do it!

    I was hoping someone could help me find out of trolling on Veyatie is allowed. It seems to be taken off the current rules for the AAC(I have what must be an out of date leaflet stating it is ok in the house). Do Ledmore Estate allow this on their boats can anyone tell me?

    Many Thanks

  • Loch Veyatie   3 weeks 6 days ago

    Was wondering if someone could clarify whether trolling is allowed on Veyatie now? I was under the impression that it was ok to troll for ferox in Veyatie, Cam, Assynt and Beannach, but after looking up the rules on the new AAG website, there was no mention of Veyatie. If this is the case with an AAG permit, is it still ok from a Ledmore boat?

    Many Thanks

    The Assynt Angling Group has a new website:

    This has details of their fishing, permits and boats.

    You can also get details of their lochs on this website by going to...

    ...and using the filter to select Assynt Angling Group.

    We have updated the links to their website but if you find any that are still broken, let us know.

    Not many - the two you have identified and you can spin from a boat on Cam and Veyatie, but I think it's only trolling that is allowed. The Assynt Angling Group website has been down for ages which has the precise rules on it - I will try and find out more and feed back

    Much as I love fly fishing I sometimes like to cast out a small mepps using a seven foot lightweight rod. I see that spinning is permitted at Loch Borralan and read that there was a four mile stretch of bank on Loch Assynt (not sure exactly which bit). My question, are there other Lochs where spinning is allowed?

  • General Comments   18 weeks 4 days ago

    Hi All, much as I like fly fishing, I also enjoy spinning on light tackle like the small mepps spoons. Can you point me to where I can find information on which of the Assynt Lochs I can use spinners - if at all possible within club rules. Thanks

  • General Comments   19 weeks 17 hours ago

    Hi, Yes as far as we know and people definitely use them. Might be worth double checking when buying permits for info on particular lochs.

  • Leave Your Comments   19 weeks 18 hours ago

    Hi Pete I will check. Tehse boundaries were drawn some years ago so things may have changed

  • Leave Your Comments   19 weeks 6 days ago

    Hi - I'm interested in fishing the Duhb Loch More and Beag just to the south of Ben More Assynt. Are these covered by the Eastern area permit? I can see they are within the boundary shown on the map but couldn't find them listed on the website so just wanted to check. Many thanks.............Pete

    Please could you tell me if float tubes are permitted on the Assynt Lochs?

  • Cam Loch   24 weeks 5 days ago

    You're not allowed to fish with worms on Cam (or anywhere). It is fly, or trolling from a boat, only.

  • Cam Loch   24 weeks 6 days ago

  • General Comments   25 weeks 5 days ago

  • General Comments   33 weeks 12 hours ago

    You're probably best contacting the Assynt Foundation to ask as South Zone is mostly on their land.

  • General Comments   34 weeks 6 days ago

    Hi,i'm heading up next week. Looking to fish some remote, high lochs in the South zone. Are there any access issues as a result of deer stalking in the area. Thanks
