Lochter Fishery

4 lochs totalling 12 acres on this well stocked fishery with fish up to 20lb. One sunny February day I popped in for a spot of fishing only to find the loch 60% covered in ice. I nearly went home when I saw a fish move and decided to have a go. I got my two fish and several good takes and runs, surprising given the conditions. The fish were so keen they were actually smashing through the thin ice to get at the few flies that were around! A good lodge and much more on offer here for the family and angler.
