There is much to do in and around Howmore, but some people will be drawn by the fishing in South Uist, in general, and that of the River Howmore bridge pool, in particular. There are many techniques connected with angling and none more so than spending time on reconnaissance. It is, as they say, never wasted. For those wanting something of an encyclopedic guide, then go to Kinloch and delve into the notes, observations, sizes of catch and professional advice. Fellow-hostellers would be only too pleased to assist in the cooking and consumption of your catch.
