Hello Folks. Sorry for the late report but its better late than never.... Having been to Skye a few times in the past and done a bit of fishing and been totally in awe of its beauty, I thought its about time i dragged a few of my angling buddies up to show them just what a special place Skye really is. Well we made the long trek north through the night as the roads were far less busy, its a long enough journey as it is without being caught up in traffic... Once on Skye I was taken back again just how stunning this place really is, it just seems to get better and better and seems that round every corner is a fantastic photo opportunity.. We were lucky with the weather really, very little rain but at times the wind made things a bit tricky and forced us to take shelter and fish in less favourable venues, but all in all it was a smashing week with some great friends and some nice fish to show for our efforts.. Well here are some pictures of the trip hope you enjoy them... The Team.. Most venues held Spurdogs and a many of them were into double figures, we even manage them to over 12lb on the float which was good fun on the light rods... Well the spurs kept coming thick and fast with one of the lads catching 2 on the same rig for combined weight of 19lb, one the main hook and one on the pennel hook... Back fishing and yet again the the Spurs were out in force... The view from our cottage was unreal... Amongst the Spurs we managed to catch Conger, Ling, Cod, Wrasse, Coalfish, Pollock, Mackerel, Dogfish, Skate.. Kilt Rock.. Cuckoo Wrasse for Harry.. Small Conger for John.. Well the highlight of the trip had to be the big Skate Matty caught, it took around 1 hour from first hooking it to landing it and but up a great account of itself ripping of yards of line when going on a run and often just hanging in the tide with him unable to move it, eventually it tired and out came a lovely Skate, quickly measured it and a few photo's and it was soon back swimming off it was an amazing sight to see such a creature... The Skate measured 83"/62" and the Skate calculation chart put it at around 207lb.. The gang and the Skate.. Matty and Skate.. I know it was was not good handling of the Skate in the first picture and we would never intend to damage such a creature, but we are now aware that holding a fish like this could damage its spine.. Lesson learnt and if we ever catch another you can be assured we would not do the same again.. Farewell fishing friends until we meet again.. Tight-lines.
