Monikie Angling Club

"Probably the best value fly fishing in Scotland!"

We're fishing again!

NOW we've restarted fishing, we're keen to let everyone know how things are going at Monikie Angling Club.
And, boy, are they going well with some super catches, as you'll see below.
This page is updated every week. If you've had a good day at Monikie, why not drop us an email at mac@monikie-angling-club.org.uk to let us know how you got on? We’d be delighted to hear from you.
Please remember that once anglers have kept their allocated rod limit of fish they must stop fishing and leave the water.
Where fishing catch and release (using barbless or de-barbed hooks) anglers must stop fishing when they have their limit, and have released 15 fish.
