We enjoy a spot of fishing, and there is no shortage of great places to fish around Balliemeanoch – both sea and fresh water.
I have to admit though, there is generally more enthusiasm than skill involved in our efforts, and we came back empty-handed from our first two fishing expeditions. But third time lucky; at our latest attempt we managed to catch the most fabulous mackerel, right here on Loch Fyne. (We reckon that Nick, just starting his summer break from uni, must have been our lucky charm!)
Charlie stepped in to do all the messy stuff, and then we cooked up a simple but tasty feast. It was so satisfying to eat a dinner that we’d caught ourselves, on the loch around the corner. And at less than two hours from water to table, it’s certainly the freshest fish I’ve eaten for a long time – we could taste the sea with every mouthful!
