Fly Fishing Adventures

£100 for Two Rods
£150 for 3 to 4 Rods

The island of North Uist is famous for its wide variety of fishing opportunities for brown trout, sea trout and salmon. With such a wide variety to choose from it can be a daunting task trying to find the perfect beat or know the state of the tide. Why not book yourself a day trip with James Macletchie who has had over 40 years of fishing experience on these waters to help discover some of the more remote lochs and sea pools in the search for salmon and seatrout.
Seapools are dictated by the tide and during the summer they are often full of fresh sea trout averaging from about 3Ibs up to record fish over 10IB
