Knockando beat on the River Spey will again welcome ladies from across the UK to fish their water on Friday 31st March and Saturday 1st April.

This successful ladies event is organised by The River Spey Anglers Association and welcomes beginners and experienced female anglers. All monies raised from the festival will go towards introducing young anglers on Speyside to fishing.

Feedback from our last ladies event on Knockando “Thank you for arranging a superb day truly memorable. I thoroughly enjoyed it, not only the fishing but the very friendly atmosphere and camaraderie with everyone.”

During the two days you will fish the exclusive Knockando Estate, one of the most spectacular and beautiful beats on the river. The estate lies in the heart of Speyside and comprises of some 16,000 acres of woodland, moor and hill. Three and a half miles of river
