    Plenty places close at hand to try for a sea trout, Ardmair Bay is a good place to try, possibly for bass too.

    Would I be right in assuming that because that's open sea, fishing without a ticket would be legal and in order?

    I had follow after follow fishing off the shingle of Ardmair beach.
    Sea Trout slashing from side to side behind my fly or lure until they catch sight of me & bugger off.
    Plenty of consolation Mackeral, and nothing better than a couple of fresh fillets for breakfast.

    Rhue lighthouse (between Ullapool & Ardmair) produced some great fly sport - mainly Pollock.

    Hi Boatman sorry for the delay in replying, yes fishing in the salt is free as geraddwatts affirms. There is more sea trout action in Ardmair bay than in L Broom, as previously mentioned try Rhue Light house rocks too.

    Haven't fished since I was a nipper but always fancied it.
    I bought a little spinning rod that would fit on the bike and tackle a while ago but have never got round to it.
    If I bring it will some fecker show me how to use it ?

    I have one of the wee telescopic ones ( believe it actually came from the hardware store in Ullapool) carry it in a bit of 40 MM black tape covered domestic drain pipe cable tied onto the crash bar , it's not a serious fishing pole but it is ok to get an odd trout when wild camping

    Boatman, yes Ardmair bay is the first bay north of Ullapool, right at the side of the road. I've know of sea trout being taken off the beach spinning and off the rocks too, some use a fly off the rocks.

    Spinning? Telescopic rods? Fishing poles?

    Heathens....have you no class? Have you not heard of Hardy Smuggler fly rods that fit neatly on a BMW?

    I see some education is needed.

    It's looking quite likely that I will not be able to get there til sat PM, but its in the lap of the grouse....
