*SPECIAL NOTICE*              Last updated 29/10/21

Due to the continuing Covid 19 situation, we are all having to make changes in the way we go about our daily lives, this includes whilst fishing. The fishery is open and we continue to make every effort to plan for your safety whilst fishing here as best we can in these unusual & developing times. We will follow and adhere to any changes in the Scottish Government guidelines & we ask you to do the same, so the below listed working protocals may be subject to change. We will try to keep everything as simple as possible while still taking into account yours & our safety at all times. As such, you may wish to check back in here prior to making a booking to ensure you are updated to any changes!


1.) You can pre book  your days fishing or just turn up on the day. However I would recommend at least calling ahead on the day to ensure we are not full.  So booking is not essential & we are accepting walk in customers. If  you book ahead, please state your name, date of fishing & estimated time of arrival. You can call the fishery direct on (01506) 873073 for bookings and enquiries.

2.) Bring all your own equipment, including NETS. We do not currently rent out or loan fishing equipment.

3.) Only 2 customers in the office at any time. No sitting inside for lunch either, sorry! You must also wear a face covering whilst inside the fishery office.

4.) The shop is open. Fishing bits & bobs, Tea, coffee, cold drinks and basic snacks are available to buy.
