Loch Brownies
« on: June 19, 2013, 07:53:59 AM »
Had a relaxed half day's boat fishing with a good mate on Monday - anchored up in a small loch, bobbing about, casting a few dries, and just chilling out. Cloudy, sunny, overcast, rain, sun, variable breeze/wind. Normal summer's day then!

it's a water stocked with rainbows, with a head of natural brownies, and I think in recent years it's been stocked with small brownies, which seem to have fattened up rather nicely:

My best was 18" on the nose, and fat as a fat pig:



Dan's best brown came in at 15", and was also a porker:


It's a nice wee loch; the boathouse has been sympathetically renovated, and one new boat added, and it's fit for purpose. Sadly, the two other boats are still pants - comically worn rowlocks bollox. Fortunately, it's not far to row.

You may recognise from the photo (no names, please). Looks like a ghost fish captured on camera here too.



cheers

Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience ;)

Tiz a bonnie brownie Iain!

I shall have to have a wander up for a cast. Do they still do evening tickets?
Ok, I admit it, I quite like this salmon fishing lark....

Now that's a fish Iain!  :z16
I see that that loch might have to get a throw soon. I always new that there were Browns of that size in there as they used to go nuts for a muddler at dusk.  :z4

Living with deep, full breaths is the way of the trout. Fish, it seems, are the ultimate teachers in breathing.

is this a normal summer's day? ??? or an action movie? The picture shows you had a peace for a while. Well done, and nice trout.

Tight lines,

good on ya Ian  :z16

that fish seems to have a gill-plate edge-eating parasite.  (on the fin as well)
i've been seeing this more and more at the fishery where i work. my (unscientific) thoughts are that it might spread and am awaiting more info from the local biologist. you might wanna tell the owner about this ?
maybe Super-Hamish could chime in on this subject ?

cheers,

Iain,
nice troot, I would be up for a day up there.

Do they allow electric outboards?
