Fly fishing at its best

A good walk up from Canisp Lodge and seemingly into the middle of nowhere but the rewards were well worth it. I fished both these lochs, the boats were quarter full of water showing that they had not been fished for a while. after bailing out I drifted with a drogue in a gusting NW breeze and took plenty of fish all over the water up to 12oz. I had 24 in the first loch and 21 in the second with plenty of double hook ups and one cast saw 3 trout leap clear of the water onto my team of 3 flies. MAGIC! Claret bumble muddler, standard Claret bumble with a very dark green heather fly or Daddy long legs with gold body working best on the point. well greased drawn through the waves.
Well yes it was a long walk but if you make the effort to fish both these lochs you might just get a PB as I did. Totalling 45 trout in one day + 1 pretty little sea trout.
Thanks Peter for the recommendation. Tim.
