StormCats were a part sponsor of the Commonwealth fly fishing competition on the Island of Islay this June.

StormCats provided 4 boats.
2 x NEW StormAnglers and also 2 x StormFishers which are a year old provided by Jim McHarrie (who has 2 x StormFishers for hire for fly fishing on Loch Gorm on Islay)
The weather conditions were windy and wet, typical unpredictable Scottish weather and this was a challenge to many of the Anglers.

Scotland won the competition with a total off 227 fish
England took second place with a total off 190 fish
Australia were third with a total off 134 fish

Islay is recognised as having a place in the International fishing map, we have also attached a photo of the winning team. Well done Boys
