Angling innovation

 

Founded in 1917, Inverness Angling Club successfully supports and promotes angling in Inverness and the surrounding area, attracting a membership of over 350, including a strong junior (under 18) section of over 100.

As the club enters its centenary year it can justly claim to have made a significant contribution to game angling in Scotland and further afield. It builds on the innovatory skills of members such as the ‘Wizard of the Ness’, Alexander Grant, master of Speycasting and inventor of the Grant Vibration rod; John Reidpath, who changed the face of fly tying with the development of the Hairy Mary, the first modern hair wing salmon fly; John Cathcart, inventor of the famed Black Shrimp; and three times world Speycasting champion and record holder, Scott Mackenzie.

The achievements of Alexander Grant were celebrated in an international Speycasting tournament in 2015, staged as part of Scotland’s Salmon Festival. It attracted 20 Speycasters from the USA, Ireland, Norway, England and Scotland. The event will be repeated by the banks of the River Ness on September 1 and 2, 2017, again as part of Scotland’s Salmon Festival.
