Is that the Morar Hamish? ...... I think the Scavaig on Skye is the shortest?

I can see why that might come up, but the wee burn coming out of Sandwood is not classed as a river wheras the other two are. Also, though not in recent times, the sands breach and the loch goes brakkish again.
Lovely spot, been there a few times.

Aye,
Just a wee bit humour Hamish,despite its fame the loch isnt heavy fished,but maybe like me all they caught was bandies.
Some lochs north of it are worth a wee cast,but check for `practice` times.

OK Joker played.................

Primarily their names are known for their fly reels.   A father  and his two sons were all reel manufacturers .
Their  advert said  ' A POSTAL WILL BRING IT ' .   They took out many Patents for reels .

Which famous company was this ?

Cheers,  Pete

J W Youngs would have been my first guess too but I thought there were three sons :? I dunno, I might think about this some more  :wink

I will have a guess at Orvis as they were the forerunners of mail order.

Interesting, I thought of Orvis but decided that the phrase 'a postal will bring' is a bit 'old school' even by American standards and as their (Orvis) mail order growth only really happened after the Perkins family took over I guessed Orvis was a non-starter..... hmmmm  :z6

I thought it might be Bogdan, Charlton or Thomas & Thomas, but the only one of those companies had brothers (T&T).

I'm stumped :shock

' The Postal will bring it ',  referred to their catalogue .

Famous - on par with Hardy . If I had a sackful of the reels I would be rich .

Only one I can think of on a par with Hardy would be Abel Reels started by Steve Abel in 1987.
