We had a pollution incident this morning witnessed by our River manager Alistair Hughes SEPA was contacted
We would ask if you spot any signs of pollution of any kind please phone SEPA they should give you an incident number, if they don’t please ask for one as this helps follow it up,it would also be beneficial but not always possible if you would wait for the SEPA rep to attended. There is a Pollution FORM and a file upload and would ask if you could fill it in and submit it to us, all this information will help fight against these incidents.
We are holding another casting day,Sunday 30th September 12 o’clock at Grayfriars, it was a great success last time so come along it’s only for a couple of hours,there will be plenty rods and reels to have a cast with and there will be help on hand if needed.
This will probably be the last one this season so don’t miss out
There is a new item on the mail menu HERE
Thanks to the guys who turned up for the clean up this morning
It was once again a very disappointing turnout with only four members and two from the committee attending.
We have received a couple of letters from CHAS
Well done guys.
Below is a picture of John and Alex presenting Anne from our chosen charity CHAS with a cheque for £1500 form MCAA.
This fantastic amount of money was raised by selling raffle tickets,donations at the opening day, non catch return renewals and donations,thanks to everyone who contributed to raise this sum of money for a very worthy cause.
The presentation took place at a fishing competition at Glengavel Reservoir on Sunday 5th August organised by Mr Derek Ramage where another £817 was raised for the charity, on behalf of Derek, a big thanks to everyone for their efforts for yesterday especially UAAA for yesterdays venue.

As there seems to be a few fish in the system can we remind members that we are needing scale samples,there is lots of information can be got from these samples and we would appreciate the collection of them.
You can either hand them to one of the bailiffs or send them to
