Trout Fisherman Magazine

 July-August 2009


A book that captures a real sense of ‘place’ about a fishing location, to the extent that you feel you know it before you even set foot there.

  That place is South Uist, off Scotland’s north-west coast, where Billy and Marion Felton’s Angler’s Retreat guesthouse is the subject of recurrent pilgrimage among flyfishermen so numerous, this book contains an assortment of reminiscences from just a few of them.  

Each bears witness to the wealth of fishing to be found in the Outer Hebrides and to the banter to be had when your landlord/guide is an opinionated ex-Army sergeant major who thinks ‘PC’ is a police officer…  

With helpful maps and fly ideas included, it’s a perfect introduction if you’re planning on fishing in the area.  If you’re not, read it anyway…
