New year gets off to a great start with some nice fish being caught.Andrew More had a good fish of 8lb 14ozs today and Damian Masson a 5lb 2ozs. Remember that the new competition to replace the tagged fish has begun and works the same,except no tags andis done on the heaviest fish of each month as published in the Trout fisherman magazine at the fishery.That is provided you have put your pound in as before,no pound ,no money and it will go to the next heaviest as explained.Simple,no looking for tags anymore. Huge amount of stock going into the water this week so sport should be good and that is only the start for this year.Blues will certainly put a bend in rods. Happy new year to all.

Apoligies for the pictures and some didn't come out,wasnt 100 % today but at least they show what a great day everyone had at the Club Open day competition.2 tagged fish were caught by Gavin Addison and Neill Smith and that is it now for tagged fish as it now starts the new monthly competition,any tags caught now are void and it is the heaviest fish of the month that gets the money so its paid out each and every month., so make sure you enter them,still costs 1 to enter.Loads of fish caught today and plenty of big fish,some pictures didn't come out but tried to get as many up as I could but the results will be up later.Heaviest fish was Jimmy Rhind at 7lb 15ozs.There was a good distribution of raffle prizes and there is some at the fishery for anglers who bought tickets aswell.Everybody had a great lunch and the club is looking at doing this every year . There is so many people to thank who without their hard work and effort it would not have been as it was.Tara deserves much credit for much of the raffles and food and hard work running around cant thank her enough.Wendy and Jimmy for their huge effort in organising and running the competition smoothly and a big thankyou to those business,s who donated the many raffles we cant thankyou enough.Walkers,Baxters,distillerys ,local shops ,so much thanks to you all.Lastly thankyou to all the anglers who fished,we had a great day and the weather was kind after all the storms we couldn't have got a better day for fishing and great to see good quality being caught,which is down to great suppliers. So now its looking ahead to 2017.We intend to get off with a bang and have quite a few fish going into the Glen of Blues and rainbows so no excuses for not catching a fish.Millbuies will be getting a few loads ready for opening of blues browns and rainbows which will be all fighting fit.Quite a few loads to go in and the returns will show this. So new year,new tag compy,plenty of good quality fish and a great club and members open to all to join with plenty of benefits to the angler of discounts and outings and fun competitions.Here is to 2017.

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.
