Heat 8 - Harray Loch 26th May

It’s that time of year again where the road to winning a place in the Scottish Fly Fishing teams begins with the Harray Qualifier on Sunday 26th of May.

23 anglers contested the Harray heat with a good representation made from anglers outwith Orkney. Great to see anglers from Shetland, Caithness and Angus choosing to fish the heat in Orkney. The match was run by Orkney Trout Fishing Association on behalf of SANACC, with huge thanks to Norman Irvine for weighing and measuring and Leslie Miller who did the recording and calculations to give a result in quick time, and to Paul Miller who stepped in as the Port Angler to even up the numbers.

There was a slight change of wind from South East to East, quite brisk at times but there was full cloud all of which helped the cause, providing some shelter down the east side. The middle third of the loch seemed popular for a starting point, with Ballarat, Ess Holms and Horse Shoe popular, only two boats chose to fish the open water of Biggings, all the others were fishing over skerries or on to shores.

Top rod on the day was Kevin Porteous of FNF Falcons, with a tremendous basket of 10 fish for 9lb 1oz, second was James Bews, with 8 fish for 8lb 1oz and third was Frank Watt, Shetland FFA with 8 fir 7lb 4 ozs. The match was fished to a 6 fish kill, then de-barb and catch and release. Others who found success on the day and qualification for the next round included, Brian Foreman, Stuart Leslie, Malcolm Russell, Ian Hutcheon, Kevin Imlach, Erlend Hutchison, Jim Adams, William Taylor and Ian Cannop.

Typical of Harray, there were numerous ways to catch your fish, with methods ranging from fishing Hedgehogs on a floating line to mini lures on a DI7. Kevin’s winning tactic was to fish the skerries and drop offs around the Ess Holms, using the FNF Arc line to great effect, short lining with the line giving the all important swoop up of the flies to the surface, it obviously made the difference. James fished mini lures on a DI7 out off Biggings taking his fish on standard Orkney patterns. Others reported peach or orange flies doing the business on Midge Tips, Slow Glass lines etc.

Tight lines and every success to those who qualified, as they proceed to semi finals at various venues across Scotland.

Heat 6 - Lintrathen - 9th May

The 37 competitors in heat 6 of the National were treated to a warmer wind for their session than had been experienced during the previous five heats.  Lintrathen hosted the heat and provided a sunny day with some occasional cloud cover.  There had been very heavy rain overnight and once again conditions didn't make the fishing easy.  However the competitors caught a total of 115 trout and the top 19 of them qualified for the semis.
Top rod and recipient of a pair of Vision sunglasses was Ronnie Gilbert of Greys Menteith Ospreys.  Ronnie was fishing in the sawmill area where he netted seven fish on a mix of cormorants and buzzers.  The second placed angler was James Thomson of Perth Anglers who took 5 fish on traditional wet flies in the sawmill area.  The third placed angler, Ed Brown of the Dundee AC also fished the sawmill area and netted 6 fish on crunchers.

Spring Team member Wullie Simpson once again organised a fundraiser at Parkview Fishery and the twenty one anglers had to contend with a strong gusting wind that blew throughout the day.  It almost looked liked a re-run of the 2023 fundraiser with ten of the competitors that were there last year turning out again for this one.  There was no change at the top with the competition being won for the third year in a row by by Brian Mackenzie who netted 11 fish.

In second place with 6 fish was Alan Harvie (3rd at Cleughern last year) and in third, also with 6 fish, was Ronnie Gilbert (fourth last year).  In fourth place with 5 fish plus a bonus fish was last year's third Neill Barrett.  Neill's bonus fish was also the biggest fish of the day.

Wild fisheries
Protecting the rights of anglers.

Anglers in Scotland will be shielded from increased costs. Proposals to introduce rod licences and a new wild fisheries levy will not be taken forward, Environment Secretary Roseanna Cunningham has announced.

The Scottish Government has ruled out these measures as well as the criminalisation of freshwater fishing without written permission and proposals to overhaul the structure and remit of District Salmon Fishery Boards, following a consultation on draft provisions for a Wild Fisheries (Scotland) Bill and draft Wild Fisheries Strategy.

The Scottish Government will facilitate‎ work streams which encourage, empower and support the modernisation of fishery management, including the piloting of voluntary board mergers to identify any existing legislative issues. It will also develop a fishery management plan to trial any changes with boards and will also explore potential freshwater conservation provisions ahead of the introduction of a Bill to Parliament.

Ms Cunningham said:

“The Scottish Government is committed to supporting our famous and valuable wild fisheries, to modernise our fishery management structures and to establish a more secure and sustainable future for this vital sector.

“Our Wild Fisheries Bill will build on our significant conservation achievements to date, including the annual salmon conservation measures, Spring Conservation Orders, and the moratorium on coastal mixed stock fishery netting for three years.

“However it’s important that we represent the interests of our anglers, that’s why we have listened to the sector’s concerns around increasing costs and restricting access to fisheries and are ruling out the introduction of rod licences and a freshwater levy.

“We’ve heard through the consultation that these steps would limit the opportunities for our anglers and potentially discourage young people from taking part. Over and above this we will work with the angling community to identify ways to increase participation and to improve engagement across the sector.  

“I am grateful for the considerable time and energy that the wild fisheries sector has given to date to help inform the programme of reform. We will continue to work closely with our stakeholders to make sure the legislation that is ultimately brought forward is robust and fit for purpose, so that anglers have confidence in the management and development of the fisheries that they depend on.”
