Shetland trip
« on: July 17, 2012, 12:25:47 PM »

Here is an unlisted link to some footage and pics from my trip to Shetland this summer.

Most fish returned (some were kept for the plate...which is quite normal up there!).

Not all caught by me.  Best fish just under 5lb, with quite a few in the 4-5lb range.

Normally I target sea trout and salmon up here at this time of year...but this year i was having too much fun with the brown trout!

Hope you enjoy. It really is a wonderful place if you know where and how to fish it. :)

thanks guys. glad you enjoyed it.

The rod is indeed the one i built toward the end of last year Iain.  Thank to the help and advice from guys on here   :z16

Now that i'm back in Abereen, i'm keen to get one of these 'decent' don fish i've heard about..they have eluded me thus far this season! All of those will be safely returned of course!!

thankfully i have about 4 weeks or so till i have to go back to work  :X2

Crackin fishing there.
Shetland certainly one of my top destinations and somewhere i need to get back too soon.

Fishing quality is always high and the mix of waters is amazing.

My best so far 62degrees North is 5lb 12oz, but plenty other trophies amongst them, and sea trout in the Voes is always special (weather and timing critical of course)

Right where's my diary for 2012?

PS Shetland fish like to go back for another day as well  :wink
