Trout Fishing in Assynt - A Guide to 30 Lochs

Trout Fishing In Assynt (published April 2009) gives expert local advice on fishing in 30 of the best locations in Assynt.

Written by local angling expert, Cathel McLeod from the Assynt Angling Group and edited by Alistair Rutherford of CSTG, the booklet is a must for anyone trout fishing in the area - novices and experienced anglers alike.

  • Which lochs should I try?
  • Where are the best fish?
  • What about beginners?

Hugely informative, with directions, grid references, boat locations and tips for getting the most out of each of the 30 lochs, it includes maps, photos and advice on the difficulty of each location.
