    Not stalking related: fishing on Mull.

    I'll be heading off to Mull next week, and have a day's stalking booked with David Haldane. I don't do much fishing, but am thinking about taking a rod with me; I have a 9' #6 fly rod and a 9' spinning rod I use for pike. Any suggestions of which to take, flies or lures to use and where to fish would be appreciated. Thanks, M68.

    You should have said when we spoke last night mate! A friend of mine has recently been fishing on Mull - I'll speak to him to see what advice he can give......

    If you want to catch monster pollack try Caillach point on the west corner, cast straight into deep water with an 4oz weight, orange eel lure, count to 20/30 and retrieve, fish on every time!

    to be honest the trout fishing is very tricky late on in the season. Best June through late August

    Brown's or Tackle and Books in Tobermory will sort you for day tickets for a variety of lochs, Mishnish, Frisa, Tor
    You may still be able to get a boat out of Ledmore or Lettermore on Frisa.
    its a big old splash to be fishing from the bank

    Rivers:
    contact the Glenforsa estate for a ticket on the Forsa (caught my first Salmon there as a boy!)
    The Lussa down deep south has good fish
    and the Ba South of where you will be is short but can be productive


    If it were me fishing this time of year:
    Ballygowan bay (opposite the north end of Ulva)
    Any where between the North West edge of Calgary bay (1/2 mile away from the beach) and the Caillach Point on the North West

    both the same attack - off the rocks, spinners and/or shiney metal looking flies for Sea trout and Mackerel. You will catch coalfish and pollack as well by varying depth and lures.
    personally I would take

    Fish the high tide off Killiechronan away from the mouth of the Ba
    and the same high tide on the opposite side of the "waist" of Mull opposite Aros Castle
    best chance of a "sea borne" sea trout on the fly as the wait up at the mouths of the Ba and the Aros

    Flies: Teal, Blue and Silver, Bloody Butchers, Black Spiders, Zulus, blues and reds
    For the Sea Lures: Tobies and spoons over spinners and Mepps. Flying condoms
    Flies for the sea: reservoir lures with plenty of flash and feather (think mackerel feathers you can cast!), poppers and bone fish style lures work too

    ​good luck
