    11 foot rod

    The Sage RPL is IMHO the very best loch style rod I've ever fished with. My own weapon, however, is a Wychwood Lightline 11'#6 which, if you can find one, will be well in budget and is a cracking rod for the job.

    Durness limestone lochs

    The Scourie Hotel now has a boat on Loch Caladail and a boat on Loch Hope as well as 3 boats on Loch Stack, 1 boat on Loch More plus the 15 Hotel boats on the Brown Trout lochs. At this rate, we won't need to walk at all!

    Ryanair - Rip off continues!

    Got caught out in similar circumstances recently, the difference being that my booking was with lastminute.com rather that Ryanair direct. Our single 19kg bag was OK according to lastminute's t&cs and I pointed this out to the check in girl to which I got a "computer says no" type of answer...

    E.A. On-line Licences

    I seem to remember quite a discussion on here last year regarding non arrival of licences bought on-line. I must confess that, mine having arrived promptly, I paid little attention. This year, however, I appear to have been caught out. I applied for my licence on the 7th April and, to date...

    Nick Hancock’s Fishing School

    Irritating tit that he is, Nick Hancock touched on the thorny subject of "stocking" last night. This practice, I believe, is fundimental to the Scourie experience. Around the bar in the Scourie hotel are many cased fish - caught in recent years. All are over 4lb and, therefore, "specimines"...

    Once again, the prog was replaced with 22 blokes chasing a strangely shaped ball around a field. I assume it will be on this week.

    Anyone any idea if they moved last night's edition to accomodate the Celtic match - or has it just been postponed till next week?

    Nick Hancock’s Fishing School

    You're right, Highlander, I take the first week in June every year as part of a group of 12-15, some of whom have been going for well over 20 years. Mac is an absolute star as can be seen quite clearly. The Hotel is really rather special although you wouldn't know that from the program. The...
