Monikie Angling Club

"Probably the best value fly fishing in Scotland!"


Due to the coronavirus pandemic, AngusAlive has suspended all activities in Monikie Country Park.
All fishing at Monikie has ceased for the foreseeable future..

WELCOME to Monikie Angling Club.
Formed in 1976, the club is located in Monikie Country Park, 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 2020 opened on Wednesday, March 4.
Session dates are posted below, and prices are published here.
You can join/rejoin the club by downloading our Season 2020 application form.
To book a boat, please phone the Bailiff on 01382 370300, any day, 9.00 am – 10.30 am, 1.00 pm – 1.30 pm and 4.30 pm – 6.30 pm (during double session only).
There is disabled parking at the Bailiff’s hut at the Island Pond for the use of Blue Badge holders, and anglers who have been issued, a Club Parking Permit.
Other anglers – members and visitors – may also park here if space allows. If not, anglers can drive down, drop off their gear, then drive back to the public car park.
Barrows are also 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 two ponds – they’re known as ponds but are huge loch-size stretches of water. The bailiff's hut (complete with tea, coffee and microwave facilities) is located beside the Island Pond in Monikie Country Park.
We have 18 boats (12 on the Island Pond, 6 on the North) available to members and visitors; including visiting clubs.
Anglers are welcome to use their own electric outboard motors, but none are available for hire.

Please note it is fly fishing only. 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 weighing in at 6 lb 15 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 offer:

“Probably the best value fishing in Scotland”
