Membership of Inverness Angling Club is open to adults and under 18s in the City of Inverness and the adjacent areas of Smithton, Culloden, Balloch and North Kessock. Associate membership is available to anglers outwith this area and the club enjoys the support of members from Aberdeenshire to Essex, Sutherland to Dorset and Kilmarnock to Kent.
Exchange permits and other fishings are also available to members, offering access to a variety of rivers and lochs in the Highlands and north-east of Scotland. [Click here for details].
For visitors, the club offers daily and weekly visitor tickets which are available from Graham’s Tackle Shop in Castle Street, Inverness. And you can book in advance through FishPal or by contacting an official of the club.
Please note that Scottish law requires permits for game fishing, but a separate rod licence is not necessary. Anglers must carry their permits while fishing and, if asked, show them to a bailiff, river watcher or other permit holder on production of their authority card or permit.
