Coul beat offers prime opportunity

Inverness Angling Club, along with other local angling clubs, has been invited to take part in a welcome project proposed by John Macaskill, head ghillie of the Coul beat on the River Conon.

In a bid to create opportunities for young people to become involved in salmon fishing, and access prime fishing on a private beat, John is inviting each of six clubs to nominate a junior member for a day’s fishing and tuition at Coul on August 23, 24 or 25.

Juniors who wish to participate in the selection process for nomination by IAC should contact treasurer and membership secretary John Ralph (see contact details on membership cards or the web site). Club members may propose juniors they feel deserve nomination.The successful junior would need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian for the duration of the day to comply with Health and Safety and Child protection.

The beat is also offering all local anglers a chance to fish the river during the prime time of fishing in July. The week commencing Monday, July 5, is to be made available to all local anglers on a raffle ticket style basis, with all proceeds going to the Missing Salmon Alliance.

Anglers who buy a raffle ticket will have the chance to win three days fishing for one rod, on either July 5 to 7 or 8 to 10, enabling eight individual winners to fish the four rod beat for the week. Tickets will be priced at £20 each, available from John Ralph.
