The new Mid Clyde Angling Association website was published on 14th May 2014

Thanks to the officers from Police Scotland for their ongoing support during a recent joint venture with some of the MCAA bailiffs,there will be another patrol soon and throughout the rest of the season.

Over the past week or so we have had a couple of incidents of pollution,both Sepa and Scottish Water are investigating.

Could we please ask if you see any evidence of pollution however small to phone Sepa as soon as possible giving as much information to them as you can, their officer will give you a incident number and we would ask if you fill in the  Pollution form and sent it to us,there is also a file upload if you get any pictures.

This afternoon two Anglers were arrested and charged by the police, they were fishing for pike with no permits

Stay away,if not you could face prosecution

In keeping with the instructions issued by the Scottish Government we have to close Mid Clyde to all anglers,we would ask members to obey the restrictions and stay at home and hopeful we will all be back on the water soon.

If you have sent away for your permit and not received it yet there are two options,you can either request the permit issue to go ahead or we can send back your cheque,or if you paid by cash we will arrange another payment method to refund you.

Please let us know by filling out the contacts form HERE   

If you don’t request a refund your permit will be issued and posted to you.
