Loch borralan

Fished loch borralan in August 2016, it was perfect with us staying in the alt inn just across the road the water was quite dark and we manged to catch plenty of well fed spotted brown trout the biggest being 14 inch. The average size of the trout in borralan is very good with most being just under 1 lbs.

The morning was slow dad on a sinking line caught 1, 8 incher while grandad was wet flies floating Line and I was dry flies floating line and had a couple of small takes. While dad went to make the sandwiches, grandad wanted a row and I saw a few sedges popping up so fished a dry green wells glory and on the first cast caught a 1lbs fat trout that was a cracking fighter. After lunch grandad had a nap and me and dad went out for some for some fishing at the south west corner of the loch form the reeds round to the shallow rocks and after a bit of fun on terrestrial dries we took grandad out for a bit and he had two fish before the sun went down.

We caught the fish mostly on the Kate Mclarens and a few on green wells glory and a brown dry fly that was quite big. it was cloudy and a bit windy too.

Fishing Borralan

Fished Borralan on 16/8/2015

This was the first loch we fished on our weeks holiday. The water was very peat stained but this did not put the fish off by any means. Just over 50 fish caught by the two of us, including 2 char. No fish kept although there were a few "keepers" in the days catch. Most notably though was the massive brownie hooked just off the shore by my brother. We estimated it at between 7-9lb. The fish made a few trips to the surface and a good jump before it finally spit out the fly! Best flies were, Stone Goat, Sunburst Dunkeld and Raymond.
