    Hi Myles, yep, I have fished for and caught Char here in Scotland.
    I use two methods, either flies fished deep (30 feet+)from a boat or, supprisingly, on the dry fly!!!
    The place I go is Loch Lee which is in the Grampian mountains on the North East side of Scotland. It feeds the North Esk river. Its a typical glacial loch, long, thin, cold and DEEP! It can be hard to find the buggers in there, but when u do, they seem to hit anything. I believe that there are Ferox in there too, but you can only fly fish, so no big lures. The biggest Charr I have seen was around 2 pounds, but the average seems to be about 8-12oz. However, they are the most beautifully coloured charr I have ever seen.
    Anyway, its nice to see a site on Charr...nice one!
