    Default Argyll and Bute - Fly fishing from shore

    Hi All,

    I'm up in Argyll and Bute - close to Loch Fyne.

    Does anyone know some rocks or shoreline where it's relatively quiet and I could have a cast for something into a sea loch or the sea- eg Mackerel etc.?

    Assume you don't need a license??

    Cheers,

    Patrick

    Iíd err on the side of caution if intending to fish loch fyne as not that long ago there was a warning about contaminated shellfish there

    Cairndow to the mouth of the Fyne was once one of the most heavily balliffed stretches of salt water beach in the land.
    Doubt itís the same nowadays ☹️ , but perhaps itís not worth taking the risk 😉😁

    The old stone jetty opposite Crarae quarry was once a good deep water mark for pollack and mackerel
    Not sure what access is like these days.

    The quarry itself is worth a look.
    Bitty history.

    from cairndow down is ok , and if not intentionally targeting sea trout you would get no bother, crarae jetty is fine but limited parking and best avoided at weekends , throws up codling and Pollack too
    Frank's garden centre worth a visit for lunch , not fancy but good

    Cheers guys, it would just be for Ďfuní not terribly bothered what I catch - any sea trout would go back but fresh mackerel would be nice.

    Try the rocks on the headlands on the road northwards from Tayvallich for mackerel.
