Fly Fishing, Champagne Sipping

Fly Fishing, Champagne Sipping

I’ve found the perfect summer drinks companion… and a great talking point!

Robin James outside Logie Steading Whisky & Wine Shop with fly fishing basketFinding treats like this is just one reason why I love going home. Growing up in the north east of Scotland (Forres, Moray) and now living in London, I too often forget the beauty of the area and its rich heritage.

It’s been almost 20 years since I picked up a fishing rod, but in my youth (we’re talking properly young here), I was something of a natural* when it came to trout and salmon fishing. So it’s no surprise that I was super excited when I found this little fly fishing basket.

Intended to carry all your fly fishing equipment, the wicker basket doubles as the ultimate summer companion. Wine, beer, champagne, sun tan lotion – yep, it all fits in this bad boy.

A total bargain at £21, I found it in the Logie Steading Whisky & Wine shop. I also had a cheeky little nip of a gorgeous honey-infused whisky called Dream.

If any of you are up in my homeland, definitely pop in. It’s a beautiful area and the steading (a group of farm and outdoor buildings) has just refurbished its coffee shop. Victoria sponge and a fly fishing basket – what more could you want!?

 

*Rose tinted spectacles, obviously. It was really my granda who helped land the many salmon and trout that I caught. But I did look pretty good in my waterproof trousers and welly boots!
