If you have Google Maps on your phone just
look for "Inchlaggan". Then look out for my wooden fish carving on the left hand side of the road, turn down
my track here and look for my big wooden deer gate on the right with bright buoys on.
Invergarry head towards the Isle of Skye for approx 5 miles then turn left along the loch on the single track road sign-posted
for Tomdoun / Kinloch Hourn. Continue along the single track road for approx 5 miles staying on the north
shore of the loch until you see the wooden fish carving and turn left down the track for approx. 70m and please
park by the large wooden deer gate and ring my door bell. There is a sign "Fishing Parking" with some
bright orange buoys.
|Please park here at my gate
Fishing takes place in an environment that is potentially dangerous. It is the responsibility
of all those hiring a boat to act at all times with the safety of themselves and others foremost in their
Loch Garry Fishing nor the owner will accept any liability for material
damage or personal injury or death sustained in the conjunction with or prior to, during,
or after hiring a boat.
Life jackets or bouyancy aids will be provided
and should be worn at all times on the water.
The ratio of supervising adults to children who are not strong competent
swimmers must be one to one.
Whilst Loch Garry is a freshwater loch it is a large,
deep and sometimes wild body of water therefore depending on the weather no guarantee
of availability can be given for safety reasons, any money paid will be returned if
the weather is too wild.
Look for the "Fishing
Parking" sign at my gate and ring my door bell. After seeing myself you can then drive down to the
boats. Motor homes and caravans welcome.
garden extends down to the loch, I keep an area next to the boats available to anyone hiring
a boat wanting to camp. (tents, caravans and motorhomes are all fine) The rule is
it must be kept and left as tidy as you find it ie.perfect. Anyone who drops litter/cigarette butts in my
garden will be told to pick it up, depending on your reaction and my mood you will then probably be told to leave. You will
not receive any refund.
Please note there are no
CPR: Catch, Photograph & Release
By hiring a boat you agree to release all fish more
than 45cm in length. The unhooking mat provided is 45cm wide. When releasing a fish it is important the following
is done, firstly make sure your hands, knotless net and the provided unhooking mat are all wet and also that
you spend plenty of time holding the fish in the water allowing it to recover. Watch for bubbles coming out of its gills,
by gently tilting the fish from one side to the other under the water you will allow air to escape from its
gills and only then should the fish be released. If you wish to use my tank pictured above please ask, it really
is a fantastic way to keep fish happy and healthy. All my fish are put straight from the net to the tank and then the
photographing etc means that they are only out of the water for seconds which means they swim away very strongly and
is a wonderful thing to watch.
It is my opinion that if you intend to release fish it is only sensible and fair
to the fish to use barbless hooks.
Local Wildlife & S.S.S.I.
Loch Garry is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
This means to fish in one of the most beautiful places in the world and to enjoy the wildlife of the area fishers will be
informed of the importance of not disturbing certain areas around bird nesting season. For this reason three bays
in Inchlaggan are out of bounds to boats from the 15th of April to the 31st of July.
I am afraid I am unable to launch other people's boats/canoes/other craft etc
so please don't ask.
Wellies & Waders
I have one pair
in size 6, 8, 10 & 12 in both wellies and thigh waders, these are free for customers to borrow. It is helpful
if you tell me if you need to borrow these at the time of booking so I can have everything ready for you.
think about this because if you book both boats and 6 people turn up all wanting size 10 then clearly that is a problem
and you wont be going out on my boats. There is no jetty so you will not be allowed to go fishing in shoes.
I am unable to help with bank fishing enquiries, the loch is a Site of Special Scientific
Interest, boat fishing only.
PLEASE NOTE THERE IS NO JETTY SO WELLIES AT THE LEAST, IDEALLY
WADERS ARE ESSENTIAL TO GET IN AND OUT OF THE BOATS.
