A brief update on proposed events for the coming weeks.
Senior trout competition will be held at Achagour fishery near Nairn on 12th June commencing 10am and finishing at 4pm. Unfortunately no bus is available this year so you will have to make your own travel plans and liaise with fellow members for car sharing.
After competition we will adjourn for refreshments and a natter at the Culloden Inn
Last year’s event was won with a fish of over 7lbs, let’s hope we can match it.
Members Day; Sunday 3rd July, Lovat Bridge Holiday Park
This is to be a combined social and learning day for all members and a guest.
Starting at 12 o’clock, all committee members will be available to chat to, qualified instructors will give casting clinics in both single and double handed rods, bring waders and tackle if you wish. There will be guided river walks to indicate best places to fish at different heights of water and times of the year. Some fly tying will be on display with guides as to which flies fish well in our beats.
Hamish will be running a casting competition for both distance and accuracy with prizes to be had.
We will be bar-b –queuing from 2pm onwards and Graham has kindly agreed to open the bar for the afternoon.
Bring something you fancy to put on the B-B-Q, have a drink and a blether and meet fellow club members.
The more the merrier, fingers crossed for a good day.
Firth Competition is proposed for early August but we would like expressions of interest before making firm arrangements. Can you please get in touch with Hamish Young at firstname.lastname@example.org if you fancy a dabble in the briney waters.
