I've only used my rod a couple of times, two sections about 4ft long. However , my brothers hobby is fishing and he doesn't stint on equipment, its mostly sea fishing he does but ill have a word with him and see if he has something more appropriate. I'm sure hel'll be full of good advice.

I so want to bring my beachcaster...Some mackerel feathers on Quick chuck out..and a slow retrieve should produce some action...No room for it...Unless I go up there loaded like a Sherpa!!!!!

We will sort out something with your rod Biz if you can squeeze some feathers/sea hooks in and maybe a couple of half ounce/ounce weights....

Gives us more options...One spinning the other with feathers on....

Yeah Jel, I'll bring some bits and pieces. I haven't fished for a wee while but I have some kit and I'm sure big bro will be full of suggestions. Pity about your beachcaster, but needs must. I'll bring a wee bit oil and some tin foil.......in anticipation of a successful catch

Your nearer the truth than you think Noname!! Its THAT sort of place!! I would not be surprised if there is a still or two tucked away in a wee remote glen somewhere...

If you want a laugh check out the tax discs on the motors..That's all I am saying on that matter???

I had a laugh about the cars when I was there a few years ago. They don't need to tax them cos the road doesn't go anywhere but when they know the police are about to visit they hide the worst ones. Apparently there are some with no doors etc.
I wouldn't be surprised if there's a large man made of wicker somewhere ......

Ha ha ha! Yes the wheels of Knoydart are very dilapidated. I remember seeing a few rust buckets last summer. If it gets you from A to B though

Mr A may bring a fishing rod as well, if he can find a suitable one in the garage.
