Trout fishing
..............................................................................................................
The Isle of Lewis has trout lochs almost beyond number and the visitor to Taigh Granaidh will find that the only problem will be deciding which loch to fish on any given day. Some of the nearby lochs are but a short walk from the cottage or on the other hand the angler might care to venture further afield. There are many good lochs close to the road but the adventurous angler might prefer to head out onto the moor, map and compass in hand, to explore some of the more remote lochs. Sometimes the angler walks miles to find the loch holds only small fish but now and again the angler casts over the remote loch and soon finds the rod bent double and enjoys a fight with a real wild brown trout that might not have seen an angler on its loch during its lifetime.

Most of the trout fishing on Lewis is free of charge and this gives the wandering angler considerable freedom. Fly fishing it probably the most common method of fishing for the Lewis trout but the worm and spinner are also frequently used and as all legal methods are allowed on almost all trout lochs there is no restriction on how the angler may fish. Some lochs in the area are also known to produce large numbers of fish. Often these fish are relatively small but on the right day such a loch can make the ideal spot to teach a beginner as they can be almost sure of a fairly regular return on all their hard work.
