“Another excellent way to learn more about your waters is to participate in river cleanups or work parties that aim to improve facilities. Besides making new friends you will be helping the club and benefiting from other members experiences. Ultimately though, to get the best from the Club waters, you will have to spend a lot of time not just fishing but walking and looking to find fish.”
Members please note that NO salmon may be killed on our waters after 1st April 2016. Mandatory catch and release (all methods) is required.
This is specified in the Government policy for Grade 3 rivers as detailed in
“The Application of Conservation Limits for Atlantic Salmon”(17 December 2015) and “The update on the package of conservation measures” (9th January 2016)
The result for the “Jimmy Docherty Rover Challenge Trophy” is shared this year between Bill Rankin and Paul McLean, well done guys ! The trophy was donated by Joe Docherty in memory of his father Jimmy, a member of this club in the early years.
It was a nice day for a walk up the river, seven members turned out, and thanks to Joe for passing on tips and knowledge to others. Hopefully the river will see an increase in members fishing this year. Tight lines !
Don’t forget the guided walk up the Massan this Saturday 25th with Joe Docherty, should be very interesting and the weather forecasts quite favorable too.
