A new year dawns

It has been a tough year. All of us have faced the possibility of contracting a dangerous virus. Some have caught it and come through. Others have suffered the most serious consequences. Tomorrow will see the start of a new year in which vaccines offer real hope for the future, and economic and social recovery.

In the great scheme of things, fishing may seem insignificant. For many of us, however, it makes an important contribution to physical and mental wellbeing. Regulations may prevent us from picking up a rod for a cast on the River Ness opening day on February 1. We shall have to wait and see. Meanwhile, Inverness Angling Club sends its best wishes to members, and anglers far and wide, for a successful and enjoyable season on river and loch. Stay safe - tight lines!

Seasonal message

Inverness Angling Club president Alex Elliott sends his best wishes to all club members and their families for Christmas and the New Year.

“It has been a very difficult year in which Covid-19 has had a serious impact on individuals and families. But I hope that members, their families and friends - even with current restrictions - can enjoy a happy Christmas Day and look forward to a new year in which things will take a turn for the better. Stay safe!”

Membership arrangements

The move to Level Four Covid restrictions will mean that the tackle shop of Grahams of Inverness will be closed from Boxing Day for three weeks, or until the Scottish Government determines otherwise.

Consequently, the shop will be unable to fulfil its role as a key point for the distribution of Inverness Angling Club’s membership cards and permits. Meantime, all anglers seeking to renew or apply for membership for the 2021 season should do so through membership secretary John Ralph, Ailigean, 98 Fairfield Road Inverness IV3 5LL Tel: 01463 718010 Mob:07702889841 Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Please don't call after 8 pm.

Any change to these arrangements will be posted to the web site. In these difficult times, the club sends its best wishes to all members for the most enjoyable Christmas that restrictions allow, and look forward to a year free from Covid concerns.

Membership cards for Inverness Angling Club are now available from Graham’s tackle shop in Castle Street, offering ideal Christmas presents for avid anglers. And discounted prices for fishing time lost as a result of Covid restraints make the permits particularly good bargains.
