    Default TROUT FROM STILL WATERS - Readers Cast (Alan Bithell) - Jun 18, 2012

    TROUT FROM STILL WATERS - The Scottish Approach


    Loch style fishing has been done on the Scottish lochs for many, many years. It doesn't only work here but on any still water, all that is needed is a little wind.


    Some years ago a couple of friends of mine visited Hebgen Lake in Yellowstone. The local advice was to motor to the inlets and look for "gulpers". No one was having good sport at that time. Instead they fished "loch style" from a drifting boat. In the half day they fished over 50 trout came to their two rods.

    Alan,
    Thanks for the article. I appreciate your inclusion of some points of ettiquette in you article. I look forward to seeing a discussion of flies. I have started using a variation on the Invicta theme and found it to be an excellent fly.

    Regards,
    Ed

    I can see this being very useful on some of my favorite lakes AZ up over 9,000 ft. on a mountain where the wind can be ruthless but the trout are quite large (so I am told, I have no firm evidence yet.)
