Brown trout

This is a very fishy looking loch but on the day we fished it we only managed two small trout.
The weather being favourable, I'd have expected to have had more action but the other lochs we fished didn't produce much either that weekend.

However, there is fish presents and there are the remains of an old fishing boat so maybe on the right day, it will fish.
