UPDATE 19th April 2024.

Weed Clearing at Orrin Lochs – 27th April.
With the Junior Season starting soon, the Club members will be clearing some of the weed that has grown up through Orrin Lochs.
We should be beginning to clear around 11am on the Saturday morning, if any members would like to lend some muscle.
Then we can arrange to have the first session of the Junior season.  In-boxes will soon have an email with a Junior Membership form to complete and return to our Membership Secretary – Ewen Robertson. Also, if you know of a Junior who might like to join, the form is available on our website.

Opening Day on the River Beauly.

An excellent morning was had when we opened the River from the Downie Fishing Hut. A wonderful young piper took us down to the water for Jim Braithwaite to give the toast to the River echoed by all with a wee dram donated by the Ord Distillery. Ewen Robertson made the first official cast onto the River at the Island Run.

The Piper beginning the march to the water

Refreshments of sausage rolls and bread pudding were soon eaten followed with fudges and chocolate slices from Margaret and Liz and an amazing decorated and tasty cake from Gift – see photographs. There was a great response to our first raffle of the year with many prizes donated by the local community and club – a rough list and photograph is shown on the Gallery pages.

Access was a problem for some of those attending as following the recent heavy rain and flooding, which meant part of the track was well under water, but wellies and determination saw them through up to the Downie hut. Thank you to the SUV and 4×4 drivers who were able to give lifts to those with lower sub-frames who parked up before the ‘flood’.

Many thanks also to all members and guests for their help and assistance in making the morning go well and in making everyone feel welcome to our River Opening. 

Pictures are shown on our Gallery pages and the Highland News sent Jamie, their photographer, along to snap the important toast to the River. We may see some of their pictures in the Courier come Tuesday or Friday.

Many thanks to The Ord Distillery for their donation of the Toast from a bottle of  Singleton

  • The Beauly Angling Club provides members with affordable access to river and firth for Salmon and Sea Trout.

    The club was founded during the Second World War by the late Simon Fraser, Lord Lovat, and became known as the Beauly Angling Club in the mid 1980s.

    Our fishing on the River Beauly extends downstream from Lovat Bridge to Wester Lovat; this equates to around 7 miles of bank fishing with ten named pools.

    The fishing on the inner half of the Beauly Firth is also included in club membership offering saltwater fly fishing, spinning and bait fishing predominately for Sea Trout. We have a number of exchange tickets set up with other Angling Clubs across Scotland.

    We will have exchange tickets and also offer concessionary waters – please see the menu from the Members & Club Information pages after the Season begins

    The club holds a number of friendly competitions for members held on different waters and regularly fields teams in inter-club competitions during the season, please see the Competitions page.

  • In 2014 we launched a junior member development programme aimed at bringing the next generation of anglers into the sport. After the success of Junior Fishing Days in 2021, 2022 and 2023, the Club plan to hold more days in 2024 – check the website and Facebook for details and Yorky or Karl should be getting in contact as well.

    Who can join? The club is open to potential members from all over the Highlands & Islands. We would particularly welcome applications from potential junior members.
