Feisty trout


Another attraction of IAC membership is the ability to fish one of the region’s top brown trout lochs. Loch Ruthven, just a short drive from Inverness, holds feisty brownies which will test anglers and their tackle. It’s also an area of scenic beauty and spectacular sights - soaring eagles and one of the few UK nesting grounds of the Slavonian Grebe. Bank fishing is not permitted on Ruthven. A club boat is available for free use by club members. To ensure your enjoyment of this wonderful Highland fishery, please book early through Graham’s tackle shop. Tel: 01463 233178.

Flies for a rise cover a broad range fished on a Di3 line early season and bright days, especially in the narrows half way up the loch, with plentiful sport on floating line at all other times. Muddler heads can prove attractive. Specific patterns include Kate McLaren, Soldier Palmer, Zulu and Loch Ordie, along with bibio, hogs, hoppers, Dunkeld and Silver Invicta.
