Sponsors support league success 

Members of Inverness Angling Club completed an enjoyable 2017/2018 Winter Trout League at Achagour Trout Fishery on Saturday (May 12). While more trout were taking surface flies and buzzers, fishing proved to be hard.

 

The best bag overall went to Mike Campbell. Billy MacKenzie was second and Alex Elliott third. Jim McDowall landed the best fish overall. The junior champion was Fraser Munro. Almost £1,000 worth of prizes were donated by main sponsors Snowbee, supported by Grahams of Inverness, Bellfield Enterprises, Highland Industrial Supplies, Ness Side Fishings, Achagour Trout Fishery and Jim Jarvie. They included rods, lines, fishing and tackle vouchers.

 

The trout league will continue in 2018/2019, marking the tenth anniversary of the competition which runs in monthly sessions from October to May.

All welcome for June casting clinics

Inverness Angling Club will be staging its annual series of casting clinics at the Little Isle Pool of the River Ness (by Bught Park) from 7 pm each Wednesday evening in June - the 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th. Members, non-members and youngsters, including novices and parents, are welcome to attend the classes which are free of charge.

For peace for mind, all coaches hold a minimum Sportscotland/UKCC Level 1 coaching certification, with PVG and Disclosure Scotland clearance. An added incentive will be the presence, on most evenings, of world casting champions who will demonstrate their skills and participate in the coaching. 

The classes will cover Speycasting with fly rods of around 15ft and trout rod casting. If possible, please bring your own rods, but a limited supply of loan rods will be available.

Casting skills: One-to-one coaching

Another for isle

The Little Isle Pool of the club water is beginning to produce results for those who fish it for its streamy runs and the ‘craic’ with fellow members. The second fish of the week came on Saturday - a good double-figure springer for James Thomson.

Superb!: A good springer for James

Success for visitor

It’s good to see visitors to Inverness Angling Club’s River Ness fishings being successful. Neil Fraser from Newport-on-Tay made it a magnificent May day with a salmon of around five pounds from the Little Isle Pool. It was attracted by a size 10 Cascade fished on a floating line with a 10ft sink tip. Says Neil: "My second salmon, my first silver one and my first springer!  Very pleased." Well done Neil!

First springer: A good catch for Neil
