Fun of the fair

Moy Hall was the place to be for most country sports enthusiasts today (August 3) for the opening day of the 2018 Highland Field Sports Fair. Inverness Angling Club personnel were once again on hand to organise and present Anglers’ Corner, where experienced snd novice fishers could participate in casting competitions and receive coaching from skilled instructors.

Pool to pool

IAC member Chris Bruce was all over the place today (August 3) - but it stood him in good stead. After landing and releasing two grilse yesterday, he added another three today - a 6.5 pounder from the General’s Well, a 5.5lb fish from the Little Isle and a five pounder from the Black Stream, taking his season total so far to six.


Catch: Number six for Chris


Hard fishers score

Two of Inverness Angling Club’s hardest fishers got further rewards for their time on the river today (August 2). Davie Dyce released a fly-caught five pound grilse on the MacIntyre Pool. Downstream, on the Silver Wells, Chris Bruce released another fly-caught five pounder. Later in the day, Chris caught and released a 4.5 pound fish on the Legion Pool and played but lost another two.


Grilse run: Another for Chris

August brings quiet day

While water and overhead conditions were perfect, it was a quieter day on the Ness town fishings today (Wednesday). Just one fish was reported - a wee grilse of three pounds caught on the worm in the Silver Wells by Davie Dyce. It was safely released.
