loch awe

Recommended Posts

One other thing to look out for apart from those maneating midges are the Ticks.

If walking through any long grass or ferns to go fishing then it is well worth while tucking your jeans into your socks and checking at night for the little buggers.

Only look like a pinhead at first but when full look more like a small Sloe.

 

Hire a boat from Loch Awe boats and try the edges of the loch.

Thankyou so much for re-awakening my hypochondriac belief that I've got Lyme disease :rolleyes:

 

Sorry Colin, but it is something I would rather not have :schmoll::yucky::rolleyes:

I went up to Awe a couple of years ago, in August. took a lodge on the eastern shore for a week, never saw a midge.

 

I did take my fly rods, but had far more spoert (from the shore) with lightweight spinning gear, wild browns and perch, and Pike to eel sections.

didn't the old brown trout record for the UK come from loch awe?

 

I agree with emma re the spinning, it was very productive.

thanks Ian, that's a useful link and does highlight the need to pick up permits to fish the loch, £60 a year seems pretty good however.

Yes there are some big Ferox in Awe and also some monster Pike.

Going around in a small boat a couple of years ago and disturbed a couple of big fish sunbathing on the surface.

Don`t know if they were Pike or what, they were in deep water, not the shallows.
