HEY! Has anyone fished duddingston Loch in Edinburgh


Recommended Posts

Hi

I have been wanting to try my hand at a bit of carp fishing for a while but living in scotland options are pretty limited!

I know markle fisheries have carp but there is that many kids running round all the time i think it would be pretty difficult to catch 1,plus if you catch a trout you have to pay for it and i really cant be doing with that.

Someone put me on to duddingston loch and i asked one of the guys in my local tackle shop about it and he said there are fish there but theres not much chance of catching.

Im wondering if anyone could tell me otherwise because id really love to give it a go!!! :D

Cheers!!

I dont have a car so where i can go is pretty limited,but duddingston loch is only about a 20 minute walk from my girlfriends flat.

I personally live in Port Seton wich is about 12 miles from Edinburgh City Centre.

But it would be good to know where else i could fish apart from duddingston,thanks for looking stuff up for me!!b :)

Cheers

Nick
