The Islands boast numerous Salmon and Sea Trout rivers and countless lochs, where fishing can be arranged either from the bank or by boat.
A number of the fisheries on the Island commence from February with the chance of a spring fish a real possibility. The main Salmon run starts from the end of June and continues through the season. The average sizes of fish regularly caught are around the 6lbs mark, but fish of double figures are not uncommon on some systems.
A single handed 9ft 6, 7-8 weight rod is perfect for the type of fishing we have and all traditional Scottish fly patterns will entice fish. Waders can be useful on some rivers and Lochs, but because all our rivers are spate systems and not very wide, they are not always necessary.
Sea Trout runs start slightly earlier and provide excellent sport. Some of the rivers are well-known for producing good Seat Trout with fish 4lbs plus having been caught on a regular basis.
