Heading up to the hills with a map, compass and rucksack – and the dogs! – is something I’ve enjoyed for many years. When staying at fishing hotels in the Highlands, or simply calling in to see what had been caught, I would meet anglers that had caught some fabulous trout – often “glass casers”. (Just look in the lounge at the Scourie Hotel in Sutherland for some recently-caught cased beauties.) When asked “where did you catch your fish?” the reply was often, “Oh, just a wee loch up in the hills”. The idea for the Wee Loch Rod was born.
The Wee Loch Rod can be tucked in your rucksack so no-one need guess you’re heading to your favourite loch in the hills. As a bonus, it can easily fit in your luggage and not incur the extra baggage handling charges inflicted by most airlines.
The 7-section 9′ 6 or 7 weight rod has now been launched, and is receiving great reviews from customers. See the review in Februarys Fly Fishing and Fly tying magazine by Magnus Angus. It is catching fish all over the world – from New Zealand to the Isle of Jura!
