The OakTree Inn seemed very keen to promote the Arctic Charr (and they taste incredible)
So last week took me to Loch Lomond one of the largest bodies of freshwater in the UK (or scotland depending how the vote goes) 5 miles at its widest and 623ft deep theres a lot of water for me to cover. My main target was one of the rarest fish in Great Britain the Powan which normally live in deep glacial lakes.

A almost shocked looking Powan
The large eyes are ideal for living in the deep dark depths of Lochs
Atlantic Salmon Parr
As well as Powan SCENE study Arctic Charr, Brown Trout and Salmon.
One or two fish in the Loch
Despite its size its relatively easy to find signs of fish in the loch with perch, roach and pike being very abundant.
Brown Trout Parr in the River Endrick
The Endrick flows into lomond and provides a great habitat for Brown Trout.
