Last week I had a fantastic week of fishing on Benbecula & South Uist!
I'd been looking forward to this Stravaig for a while. The planning and preparation for this trip really did help ease the frustration of the last year and a half of lockdown etc!
I managed to squeeze in 5 days fishing! Three days on the tube and two on foot!
I had mixed fortunes as on the first two days I actually blanked! 😄 It was very frustrating on those first couple of days, for me anyway.
However I did manage to fool a few troot on the other days!
There was nine of us on the trip. Most got there by ferry but one of us flew in a few days later like a rockstar, caught some belting fish and buggered off on the plane a few days later just like Bono! Unfortunately another one our Stravaigers had to leave early too due to urgent work committments. The rest of us slugged it out for the whole week!
A few of the guys got some very memorable trout indeed. My catches were more modest!
