"In the past, I worked as a ghillie on the lochs and waterways in the Highlands of Scotland. I live near the banks of the world famous Loch Ness and have long wanted to start my own company as a guide here - it is the most beautiful place to work! A lot of people come to Scotland to fish for Salmon but my favourite species is the elusive Ferox Trout." Captain Stuart has been fishing the waters of Loch Ness and the surrounding lochs and rivers for over two decades, giving him a vast wealth of knowledge he's keen on sharing with his customers. He also produces his own mepps and lures of high quality, specifically for targeting the species living around Loch Ness.
