Fly Fishing 

There are numerous possibilities for wonderful fishing.
The owner of the cottages has a stretch of about a mile on the beautiful River Ruel, a classic West Coast spate river which in the right conditions [normally after rain] can provide sensational fishing for salmon and seatrout. [June to October]
The River Eckaig, famous for its large seatrout, is only 30 minutes drive away, and salmon and seatrout fishing on it can usually be arranged by appointment at short notice [May to October]. This river is only a few miles long, flowing directly out of Loch Eck into the Holy Loch and river levels are therefore less dependant on rainfall than is the case for smaller spate rivers.
There are Hill lochs where wild brown trout abound and day tickets can be purchased through both the Kames Village Stores [01700 811356] and the Dunoon and District Angling Club to fish well stocked lochs locally. The best loch fishing is April to September.
Day Permits can also be purchased through the Dunoon and District Angling Club to fish the local rivers, Masson, Cur and Finnart for salmon and seatrout. Enquiries to fish DDAC waters should be made via Campbells Hardware Shop in Dunoon [01369 704191].
Also for other fishing in the area, see the www.fyneandcowal.co.uk website.
There is also an excellent local fishing guide/ instructor, Duncan Pepper, who can organise fishing trips for many different types of fish throughout Argyll. His website is www.fishinguide.co.uk and e-mail Duncan@fishinguide.co.uk
