Club Rules

  • Fishing is only permitted by fly rod, fly line and flies
  • The bag limit for each loch is specified in the members handbook and must be adhered to.
  • Members must be in possession of their membership card at all times, and must freely provide this for inspection at the request of any club member, estate keeper or water bailiff who have the right to inspect tackle and catch to ensure compliance with the club rules. All members must report any infringement of club rules by any persons to the committee, who shall ensure appropriate action, is taken.
  • A Membership card is not transferable.
  • Members and guests are bound to comply with any rules imposed by individual riparian owners as a condition of the lease. These rules will be made known to Members by the Committee.
  • All members use the club waters at their own risk. The club will not, under any circumstances, be held responsible for members’ property or for accidents occurring on club waters.
  • Members must supply and wear life jackets for boat and float-tube fishing. Boats and oars must be properly locked up as we must comply with the clubs insurance and meet all its liabilities.

  • Members will conduct themselves in an appropriate manner and show due respect to other members and the general public. No bullying or offensive behaviour. We aim to promote a family atmosphere.
