This 2016 kayak fishing edition was organised by Cameron .The idea was to bring many kayak fishers from all over Scotland , have them sleep in a tent , car or caravan , give them a lot to drink every evening and see how they perform on the water , hooking a fish or two .Mick and I took the highroad , a two hours drive through the most scenic part of Scotland .We arrived in the evening and it was great to sit down in Cammy’s big tent . Most of the kayakers have already returned home but this is day three and we are all still looking forward a good day on the water . It’s always fantastic to catch up with good friend and sharing fishing stories .Couple of beers later I was ready to fit into the  sleeping bag for a good night sleep .Luxury camping with that little heater going on , for once I was not cold . The morning was wet , really wet and cold with rain battering down .We organise ourselves slowly , the dry suit going on first .The sea loch scenery is unbelievable , mountains all around , snow at the top , cloud cover mystical Scotland .Six kayakers into wilderness hoping to catch a fish . Drifting along the rocky shores we went , and then hooking on some buoys or anchoring down we fished . Little bites here and there , little fish trying to steal our bait . Andy however hooked and released a ray , well done .We got rained down all morning and eventually went back to the camp for a hot cup of coffee . At that time  most kayakers were leaving , returning home . Mick and I paddled out once more still hoping for a fish . Fishing deep close in I eventually managed a small codling , Mick lifting a whiting .Terrible fishing so to say , still very early in the year but the scenery was awesome and what a great bunch of guys to spend time with on the water . Already looking forward to the next edition , hopefully a little back  in the year , Yes it is still winter in Scotland !..
