Reading

"70 Lochs, A Guide to Fishing in South Uist by John Kennedy (available via the Borrowdale Hotel. Tel: 01878 710366) and "Trout Fishing in Lewis" by Norman Macleod.

 

 

Practical, but more discursive, is "Fisher in the West", An Experience of Hebridean Angling by Eddie Young, £6.00 (Approx.), with useful chapters on flies, tackle and the delights of fishing here.
