The rule that was quoted to me... by none other than the head ghillie to the mighty Duke of Argyl clan ..when he caught me fishing for big silver “mackerel” on the shore..at low tide ..near Inverary
Quote ...“According to Scots law .. His Lordship owns the land ... as far out at low tide on springs ..plus as far as he can go on his horse.. plus as far as he can then throw his spear”
He was going to book me for illegal shore fishing .. until I slipped him a fiver. I had to come off the water though.. I then waited until he had gone..before recovering my catch of two lovely sea trout.. stashed in the bushes
This is a true version of what happened.. but I have no idea if the Ghillie’s quote is true .. I wasn’t going to argue with him.
