Some may have seen my reports on three weeks spent staying in Dollag's Cottage on the west coast of the Isle of Lewis but I thought to put an advert in here in case you might be interested in a trout or salmon fishing holiday in what is fishing paradise.
Lewis is said to have 2000 trout lochs, though to be honest I don't think it is quite that many, but it would take years to fish them all and most trout fishing is free of charge. Good quality salmon fishing is also available by the day and ranges from free to relatively expensive. I'm not a salmon angler and only fished 3 days for salmon but had one day when I had five salmon for the day and just maybe I could have made double figures if I hadn't wandered down about lunch time and then quit in time for my dinner. I had one salmon on one of the other days and lost a fish on the remaining day. For a blog detailing my fishing exploits for the first 3 weeks of September based at the cottage take a look here:
The attraction of the trout fishing is just the sheer number and choice of lochs available to the angler and you can fish lochs right by the road or lochs that require hours of walking. There is a great freedom to be had from spreading the maps on the floor over breakfast and picking the loch, or lochs, to be fished for the day.
If you are looking for a fishing destination for next year then take a look at the web site and if you want more info on the fishing drop me a line. Stalking is also available on the island and can be pretty dramatic and spectacular.
