Sunny in a boat July

Bit late on posting this - had a very pleasant day out on this loch - some fabulous views of mountains. Nothing big to write home about but caught 15 - 20 between two of us. Bright sunshine and nip in the wind didn't help. All caught on the surface - deer hair sedge, emergers and small muddlers doing thr trick.

Pleasant surprise

After a 20 min walk over the hills i found the boat in the corner of the loch by the burn outflow ! Had several drifts around the island and was rewarded with a dozen trout all around 8-10 ounces including a full house of three fish at once, hungry little trout in here !

Rowed over to the north shore where the burn comes in from loch a bharaille and walked up the burn and had a quick walk around it's south shore landing 2 wee brownies before heading back to the boat on bad nan aighean !

Took a last drift across the middle of the loch towards the boat mooring when, right in the middle of the loch, a sea trout of around a pound hammered into my kate mclaren and produced an acrobatic display before coming to the boat !

Very welcome surprise, definately be coming back to this one !
