I spent a fantastic day with Stewart, attempting the Assynt triple challenge – loch fishing, burn fishing and saltwater fly fishing all in the same day! Stewart is extremely knowledgeable, and I learnt a huge amount about local flora and fauna, and also about the fascinating geology of Assynt. I would not have known where to begin on vast Loch Assynt, and to have Stewart take me to the best bays and give tips, not to mention steering the boat, sorting the drogue, changing flies in record time etc was really helpful.
Saltwater fly fishing was completely new to me and to learn how to double haul a big fly out to sea while taking in the stunning view was something I won’t forget in a hurry.
The highlight of the day for me was fishing the wee burn. The most PERFECT miniature fingerling trout I have ever caught! Every pool seemed to hold a hungry trout ready to launch itself at my weighted nymph! I even hooked a much larger fish which slipped the hook. This really was the stuff fishing memories are made of.
I had a huge amount of fun, and also learnt a lot during the day. This was a real showcase day. If you are after a superb guide to let you enjoy this world class fishing and spectacular scenery to the full, then look no further than Stewart! I highly recommend the triple challenge.
