Red Corrie

Was up here last year (2016) in early May - a very bright, warm week that came immediately after heavy snowfall the week before. Climbed up to this loch without realising it was the Red Corrie - only read about it's noteriety (and that of it's near neighbour) after getting back home to Northumberland. As previous posters state it's fiersomely windy in the bowl of the mountain and it was almost impossible to get a line out further than a few feet. Was fishing dries - mostly small sedgehog types - on the way up in the smaller lochans that lie below the Red Corrie and got three or four to 1/2 pound (all returned safely). But sadly nothing showing at the Red Corrie itself - perhaps a combination of early in the season and the recent snow. However the location, the view and the crystal clear water were alone worth the effort of the climb. A truly breath-taking and stunning place. I'd say make the effort if the weather is good but be prepared to catch the view and not much else if the wind is up.

Very difficult loch to fish due to the clarity of the water.
Best fished on a day with little wind and preferably from the north or north-east as swirling winds in the corrie can make casting near impossible.
A single dry fly just allowed to drift in the ripple has been my most successful method.
