Camping trip August 2024

Durness limestone lochs trip August 2024!


Some simply amazing fishing was enjoyed by both groups in August 2023. The weather was not always in our favour but the trout still chose to pop by now and again to keep us always on our toes. Some days saw lots of small trout, some days saw only a handful of huge fish, some days saw us scurrying back to the shelter of our house or the tents and some days saw us pinching ourselves to make sure the weather had not been artificially placed upon us by the Gods of good fortune. The photos can be found on this link and the film material will be posted soon once it finally gets past the processing stage! Let's hop that 2024 brings more of the same magic with it!

Our film from 2018, "Mermaids", is now officially online to view. The basic idea behind the film was to highlight the importance of introducing children to nature. Fly fishing (and fishing in general) is a wonderful medium to teach children both appreciation and respect for nature. The film received two official nominations at international film festivals (the 29th MML in Spain and the WCFF in New York) and is also viewable on the online channel Join us on a journey down to the river to see if the mermaids will come out to play. Click on the photo to watch the whole film or go to our films menu. Happy viewing!

New video!!!

Our latest video is out and gives you a small peak at what a week in the hills armed with a rod, reel, tent and rucksack looks like. Sadly my gopro decided not to "go" when Erhard landed the best trout of the week but the photo tells the tale quite aptly. Super memories and a whole lot of fun in total isolation. Wild fishing at its best!

Well done Erhard!


 Erhard Löffler, with an absolute cracker from this summer, 2017. A wild week of camping up in the hills gave him a trip of a lifetime. More to follow in the gallery updates soon!

A Durness beauty!

What a summer we had up in Durness. Trout to the near magical 60cm mark and many more over the 3lb barrier. Many happy faces and full memories were had this summer! CHECK OUT THE VIDEO!
