Minutes from the November Meeting:
There has been a limited response from members to the questionnaire in the last news letter concerning activities members would like to attend. Less than 10 were received.

The committee are proposing some rule changes for the AGM concerning fish catches - please try and attend the AGM for the debate. One item is certain to go into next year's Permit is the taking of fish scale samples for ALL fish caught and killed. There is no reason not to provide full details - size, weight and a sample for a fish not going back into the river.

Jim Braithwaite will be attending the next Fishery meeting and advises that a new website for the ness & Beauly Fisheries Trust will be uploaded once details are finalised. The old site does not contain up to date information. NBFT site

The Fisheries Review was discussed at length and there are some items to put forward to the AGM from the report. Link to a PDF version
