Steve came back from a great day at a new fishing venue last week and presented me with two beautiful trout. Alderneuk Fly Fishery is a 20 minute drive away from McMurdoston, is family-run, peaceful and very welcoming. Established in 2008 it offers fish from around the 3 lb mark, with 4 lb being the average. Help and advice are always available, as are free tea and coffee, and the owners clearly love being on hand to ensure their visitors have an enjoyable experience. They’ll even help you land your fish for you if you’re a novice or if you’re lucky enough to catch one of their monsters! Have a look at their website at www.alderneukfishery.co.uk. The trout will be part of our New Year feast at McM – lucky us.
