Easter Weekend! Loch Etive and Oban

Due to a few issues with the boat we had to do without it on the Easter Weekend.  We instead opted for a few days away on Loch Etive.  With the aim to hopefully snag a few Spurries and Thornies to add to the species list for 2013.

Conditions were perfect and the weather was great.  The fishing itself was immensely disappointing.  Almost 24hrs fishing without a single bite.  Other friends on the Loch also fished over 3 days at the Priory and Bonawe Quarry without catching anything.  Very strange not to see any fish anywhere.  A very long trip to end up leaving for home early.

On the plus side.  From a photographic point of view the place is awesome!
