Trout and About: The Joy of Fly Fishing on the Torridon Lochs

Even if you do not know your Kate Maclaren* from your Gold Head Nymph, there is something infectious about The Unemployable Fly Fisher’s latest post which makes some of us yearn to cast a line into the Torridon lochs.

Entitled Happiness is…Torridon Trout it is the fishy tale of a day spent on picturesque Loch Clair, little more than 15 minutes drive from us.

The writer describes arranging a permit from Neil Morrison at Coulin Resort then taking a boat out onto the loch armed with a brace of rods.

To be honest this is where it all gets a bit technical for the less-experienced hand who might be unfamiliar with the Streamflex Plus or know where to point it.

However if there is one thing we do know it is that people who fish love to share their knowledge with those keen to try and there is plenty of in-depth information to be gleaned from keen fishermen around here to enlighten the rest of us.

If the writer’s description of fighting the battling Highland brownies (trout, that is not junior girl guides) stirs your inner Hemingway, a quick google of Torridon fishing resources before you visit us will certainly pay dividends.

Then we can point you in the right direction for your day’s fishing and welcome you back that evening with something comforting from the Torridon whisky bar, regardless of the result.

*Kate Maclaren is a classic fishing fly by the way, just to avoid any misunderstandings. As is her friend, the Gold Head Nymph.
