We were lucky to have my daughters, Daniella and Serena, and Serena’s boyfriend Ken, to stay. Before they came Serena asked if it would be possible to arrange a fishing trip for Ken. She knew it was something he really wanted to do.
We recently went on a fantastic wildlife trip with Trevor from Skye Marine where he mentioned he did fishing trips too. Ian was very enthusiastic about the idea and jumped at the chance to take Ken fishing, as a surprise. The trip was dependent on the weather and they were very lucky that on the day they went it was really calm.
Heading down the pontoon to sail out onto Loch Greshornish and Loch Snizort. Trevor hired them rods and bate and it was not long before they were getting a bite. Anything small was safely returned to the sea.
Imagine their surprise when they caught two pollock weighing in at 4lb.
They were lucky to see a variety of other wildlife when heading back and you look closely you can see a herd of hind on the hillside and a sea eagle too.
Both came back with beaming smiles and had a pact that every time they visit they will go fishing. We had some delicious pollock for tea that night.
