    Its hard to define eh? I think its a particular type of fishing, more a combination of things, the place certainly, the challenge of living in it because bailing out to a hotel when it gets dark is missing the experience, bit of a hunt, part survival, part physical challenge, or for some(Sandy) a brutal iron man type challenge, the odd moment where a helicopter trip out might be an option and people, those that do it properly are strangely, always great company round a fire.

    Take one of the ingredients out and you may as well get a day ticket somewhere more convenient.

    If you fish Tollie you get bandys but you know there are bigger fish if you can get to them, or if you fish the swampy loch up past the pylon your not looking for bandy's, the great thing is you can choose to take a 2 weight

    Go to the lochs where you don't catch bandies, cast, and repeat

    And suffer the pain of a 2 hour walk in, uphill, getting the weather wrong, and leave without a fish after a 10 hour round trip drive? who would risk that?

    Every time - as the rewards far outweigh the investment of both time and effort

    Hi All,

    I was hoping someone would be able to offer me some advice regarding fishing up in the highlands of scotland.

    Me and a friend are planning on doing some hiking/camping/fishing up in scotland towards the end of may in the the "fisherfield forest" area of the north west highlands. There are quite a few remote hill lochs up there which are very appealing to try and catch some proper wild brown trout.

    The issue that i have at the moment is that i am unsure of who to contact to ask about fishing rights in that area as we dont want to be breaking any rules and potentially spoiling the ability to fish for everyone else. Has anyone ever fished up in that particular area and has any information on where to get a ticket or ever perhaps which estate to contact to arrange fishing?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Seb.
