Monikie Angling Club

"Probably the best value fishing in Scotland!"

Cast your eye over what Monikie Angling Club has to offer!

WELCOME to the Monikie Angling Club website.
Formed in 1976, the club is located in Monikie and Crombie Country Parks, a few miles from Dundee.
If you’re searching for some of the best trout fishing in the East of Scotland – and beyond – you've come to the right place.
Season 2018 is now closed, but please come back to this page for announcements for next year.
Dates, times and prices for Season 2019 will be posted here in the new year.
You can join/rejoin the club by downloading our Season 2019 application form.
Or you can phone the bailiff to book a boat. Details here
There is disabled parking at the bailiff’s hut for the use of Blue Badge holders, and anglers who have applied for, and been issued at the discretion of the Committee, a Club Parking Permit.
All other anglers – members and visitors – MUST use the nearby public car park.
Please note, driving to the bailiff’s hut to drop off gear is not permitted. Barrows are available to transport your stuff from the public car park to the jetty.

* The parks are administered by ANGUSalive and provide a large variety of facilities.

Boat fishing only

The Club provides fly fishing for brown and rainbow trout in three ponds – they’re known as ponds but are huge loch-size stretches of water – spread between the two parks; with the bailiff's hut (complete with tea, coffee and microwave facilities) being located in Monikie Country Park.
We have 21 boats available (11 on the Island, 6 on the North and 4 on Crombie) to members and visitors; including visiting clubs.
Anglers are welcome to use their own electric outboard motors, but none are available for hire.

In Monikie Country Park, fishing is available for brown and rainbow trout on both the Island and North ponds. The fishing at Crombie Country Park is for brown trout only.
Please note that on all ponds it is fly fishing only and no bank fishing is permitted. Please also note that only club boats can be used for angling, and no anchoring is permitted.
Also, anglers must wear lifejackets, provided by the club, at all times while on the water.

There are some big fish in the Monikie waters with last season's heaviest fish weighing in at 6 lb 4 oz.
One thing that is certain about all of Monikie's fish – they are all high quality, fully finned, hard fighting trout.

To paraphrase a well know TV advert, club members widely consider Monikie to be:

“Probably the best value fishing in Scotland”

Just ask Dennis Hamilton (pictured).
“I caught the biggest fish ever taken from Monikie waters.
“I remember it well. It was the 9th of April, 2010, and I was fishing with my friend, David.
“The weather was good with a gentle south-west breeze across the Island Pond near the Craigton Bank. I was fishing an intermediate line and the monster rainbow took a Green and Black Goldhead.
“It was quite a gentle take but the fish fought hard and it must have taken about 20 minutes to bring it to the boat.
“David managed to get it in the net and it looked like a salmon in the bottom of the boat. We were overjoyed. We couldn’t believe a fish that size was in the pond.
“At 10 lb 12 oz, it was – and still is – the biggest fish taken from Monikie waters.
“It won me Fish of the Month, and Fish of the Year, 2010, and I was presented with the Eric Jeffrey Memorial Shield at the AGM.”
