So as the last academy day finished its onwards to next years planning for the new 2017 Childrens Acadamy. So here are the details. The kids Acadamy is for children from age 8 to 16 yrs old who are interested in fly fishing and learning the art of fly fishing. All tackle,instruction,fishing on the lochs and fish is given free and costs absoloutly nothing! It will run on the 2nd Sunday of each month from April to October 2017 with NO academy day in July to allow for holidays etc,so all in all it is 6 academy days. At the end of the course,each child will receive new tackle of rod ,reel and lines and other items throughout the course which will enable them to carry on the sport at no cost to parents. Names are taken on a first come first served basis and we limit it to 10 children so as they actually learn and get the time given to them and learn. It will run from 10am to 1pm every 2nd Sunday of the month starting in April 2017. Please note ,so we can help more children ,we only allow 1 child per family on the academy this give more benefit to more families. This is what we offer and now, what we ask from you,the parents. Places are limited to 10 so its important that your child actually is interested and its not something YOU want them to do and force them along and possibly take a place from someone else.Bear in mind we are giving everything for free and all we ask is a commitment for 3 hours ,once a month for 6 months.If your unable to do this PLEASE don't put your name forward and possibly let someone else lose out on a place.It is not a baby sitting service but for them to learn fly fishing.We don't allow parents to stand with the kids while being taught for safety but they are in capable hands as all instructors are CRB checked and in a safe enviroment.First aid trained instructors are on hand also so you have no worries.We do not give away free tackle if you miss out on some of the days of the course and it is at our discretion,obviously we accept children can get illness. Anyone who is interested putting names forward and are happy with the above terms which are important can contact us with details,but please,it has to be something your child wants to do and you agree to the above.While its free for the children it does cost for tackle and instructors who do it for the love of the sport and want to encourage youngsters into it. Below is some of the pictures fro this years academy.These children will go on next year to help the new intake so we don't just forget them once they finish and we intend to form a youth club of young anglers in the next coming year or two . It is amazing what the children get from these academy days,which is important.They come shy and grow in confidence and relate to adults and have a laugh,make new friends,enjoy fishing,learn a new art of fly fishing,fly tying and it brings out hidden talents they have,expression and confidence,listening and discipline,the environment and wildlife around them,fresh air away from technology for a while,a new interest, all skills they take back into the community and helps them grow into responsible people.The benefits are huge and ITS ALL FREE. Some say we make a fortune from this.Well if you can do this from FREE let us know how to do it,we get a lot of pleasure from the fun and chatter the children give and seeing them enjoy a sport we love and grow into anglers, this is why we do it.

Come and learn to Fly Fish at the Glen of Rothes Trout Fishery.

Glen of Rothes has 6 acres of water, set in magnificent Highland scenery in the Northeast of Scotland, and provides excellent Stillwater bank fishing for Rainbow trout, as well as for Browns, Blue rainbows and Brook trout. The lochs are mainly fly only, but there is a dedicated coarse loch with superb quality Carp, bream, orfe and tench well into double figures and is the only coarse loch in the area and a seperate bait loch suitable for families with rainbow trout. Whether you are an expert or just looking to try something new during your holiday, there is no need to book ahead, unless you require instruction or guiding. Just come to the lodge to buy your day or part-day permit, and you will receive friendly advice on what flies and tackle to use (rods and landing nets are available for hire if you don't have your own). The water from the Fishery flows only a mile before joining the mighty River Spey, renowned throughout the world for it's salmon fishing, and the area is also the heart of the Scotch Whisky industry. There are 30 distilleries within a 20-mile radius of the Fishery, many of which are open for visitors to tour round and have a free sample of the produce - the Fishery itself stocks a number of tagged fish each month, and the angler that catches one immediately receives 50 cash, providing you have entered into it and always ask about it. We can forget now and then to say about it. During the summer, we have a resident Osprey, and there is often an Otter on the go during the winter months. There is food available along with a well stocked tackle shop for all your tackle needs from all major brand names.

Get away from it all for a while!

The lochs are stocked on a regular basis, and daily during the summer, to ensure a steady head of fish that will give a challenging but highly rewarding day's fishing. The average weight of each fish caught has been steady at 2lb ever since the Fishery opened in 1994, and the record for the heaviest rainbow trout stands at 18 lbs and 9 ozs Catches of over 30 fish for a day are quite achievable for those who have got to know the water and how it fishes. Now that the lochs are matured and fly life is abundant, the dry fly sport is exceptionaland even the huge carp in the lochs will take a well presented fly with the best being taken around 26 lbs in weight.

Glen of Rothes Trout Fishery is a member of both the North of Scotland Stillwater Fisheries Association, and the Association of Scottish Stillwater Fisheries.
