Gull loch

Had great sport with medium sized trout in bright sunlight and patchy cloud on 10th September. Caught more than a dozen fish in 1.5 hours with two fish caught at once on 3 occasions. It was a lucky day as there was a lot of flies on the water (heather fly, daddies and another that looked like a large mayfly) so the trout were very active on the surface. The largest was 14 inches and a 1 lb which I suspect is one of the larger specimens in the loch. I only stayed for a couple of hours as I wanted to move over to fish loch na beinne rheide and camp for the night. James Dunlop
