President’s Briefing 31.03.2021

At last our fishing season is underway and, although travel restrictions still exist currently, they are changing over the next days and weeks. This allows our members from further afield to enjoy their membership and cast alongside our local members.

Fishing has been great since the opening and we are assured of significant Brown Trout catches and evidence of home-bred stock.

As previously reported, members of your committee have been active in supporting improvements; making and installing seats on the riverbank; replacing hand rails; cutting back vegetation and improving access. It is the responsibility of all of us to try to maintain our good facilities and we remind members to report anything untoward which may be detrimental – and indeed if necessary to contact Police Scotland if wilful vandalism is seen.

Most of our regular members – as well as some new – took advantage of our Adult member price reduction up to 31 Mar 2021. Adult membership price has now reverted – from 1st April – and will remain at £30 for the remainder of the season.

New memberships are still available digitally and applications are welcome by email to: membership@dreghornangling.com stating NAME of each prospective MEMBER, their FULL ADDRESS, their MEMBERSHIP LEVEL and TOTAL AMOUNT TO PAY.

You will then receive a reply from our webmaster which will contain a link to a PAYPAL account through which you can pay the total for Club Memberships. Fishing may commence once payment is received and you have the confirmation of payment email which is your proof of membership and written permission to fish our waters. The full membership tickets will be posted out to the addresses provided for each member within a 7 – 10 days.

When restrictions are lifted further our retail outlet (Alyson’s Flowers, 8 – 10 Bank Street, Irvine KA12 0AD,) will also hold stocks of annual and day tickets.
