Loch Lomond is Scotland's best known and most loved Loch and is renowned throughout the world. It has inspired songs, works of art, and there are many legendary tales of record salmon caught, the largest of which was a 44lb fish caught in 1930 by Mr Edward Cochrane. The Loch is steeped in history, and anglers who get to know its waters intimately eventually hold a deep affection for the place.
After spending almost 40 years fishing the Loch Lomond system, a Clydebank-born man has decided to share his love affair with the Loch that provided "many wonderful angling experiences and memorable days in beautiful surroundings." "Angling on Loch Lomond and its Rivers" by Richard Dickson chronicles the stories of its most famous anglers, and through his intimate knowledge of the place, its seasonal cycles, ecology and beauty, peels back the layers to reveal the magic and majesty of Scotland's jewel in the crown.
This beautifully written book will resonate with anglers of all ages and abilities but its most significant triumph is that anglers will fall under the spell of Loch Lomond. You will not only be mesmerised by its natural beauty but also enchanted by its whispers and perhaps igniting your own love affair with the place.
You can meet Richard Dickson at the Edinburgh Angling Centre Open Weekend on the 29th and 30th June where you will have a chance to chat to him about the book, and also the opportunity to buy a signed copy. Glasgow Angling Centre dates to be announced.
