Last week of the Season and the water is very high along the Beauly system.
Not many fish have been seen but there are definitely some around – the seal has been up the Downie beats twice in the last week! They must have cleared our Beats (see Ewen’s picture below).
Fishing the Beauly: our membership secretary has been busy again, taking a potential member onto the Beauly to try out the waters. A lovely, bright day though for fishing.
Loch Achilty Saturday 22nd July 2023 time: 5pm – 9pm
Winner of the competition was Toy Hardwick with a 3lb 7.5oz fish. 8 boats set out on a very good evening on Achilty. A number of fish were caught, mostly between 2 and 3lbs. The evening was not without its issues – the wind was very variable making for interesting casting from the boats. See the gallery pages for pictures of the evening. Toby also won one of the raffle prizes!
Minutes from the last meeting are available from the Committee Minutes pages.
Another successful Ewan Robertson Tour around the BAC beats took place this Sunday 30th April.
Ewan had 4 members on the tour and despite the drizzle they were shown the lesser-fished areas of our Beauly catchment.
Thanks to Ewen Robertson, a couple of members were taken around the beats and lies of the BAC fishing. More on the Gallery pages.

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 and 2022, the Club plan to hold more days in 2023 – 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.
