Loch Fishing

Can someone point me in the right direction for any discussion as to the water composition of Lochs in The British Isles...Are they 100% fresh water or are some brackish or are others mostly salt... what is the physical properties of water composition...from tide movement... etc.... What are the percentages from Natural properties. I need this in my research on the Salt water fly...Thanks

There is a mix of all types. Freshwater, brackish water and sea water. Loch is the Scottish word for Lake, but it also applies to sea inlets (what the Scandanavians would call Fjords). So you can have freshwater lochs, for example Loch Ness, brackish water, for example Loch of Steness and salt water, for example Loch Broom.

John -

See also our Chronicle section where you will find a magnificent article by Myles Kelly on fishing the lochs. Myles is a fantastic resource and worth contacting.
