Meeting Minutes for 1st April.


Permits - please make sure you have renewed yours.
The club is discussing hosting a fishing competition at Loch Watton over June or July - more details later.

Access through the gate to the Ferry Beat: keys are available but the gate needs to stay locked to stop fly-tipping near the bank.

Not many Juniors have re-applied for renewal this year and the Club and President will be trying to encourage more younger members to join.

Bank Clearance : We may need some volunteers to clear the Mealloch after Alan Brindle has assessed the problems and access.

Pike Competition 25th April 10am - 3 pm. As with all competitions please contact Neil Mackenzie for details of this and other competitions.

Fishing on the Downie Beat: With a thank you to Dave Sellers for organising the members wanting to fish over the 5 weeks, it was an enjoyable period, with some challenging conditions, as a taster for the season on the Club waters.

There are many discussions happening at Government level concerning fish tagging, licensing, stocks etc. We'll try and keep you up to date with the results as they come from the various bodies.

Visit Grahams in Inverness for Firth Tickets from Wester Lovat to Bunchrew.
Day tickets will be available in The Lovat Arms, Beauly for the 2015 Season.
