Ladies Charity Day River Ness
This years eagerly awaited ladies event on the River Ness will be on Saturday 1st September. All monies raised from the event will be donated to Highland Hospice.
The beat offers salmon and sea trout fishing on some 10 pools from the edge of Inverness through the Ness Islands. Its wide, streamy pools are especially attractive for fly fishing. Please see the photographs enclosed from the ladies who fished the water last August.
Wading is relatively easy in most pools and chest waders are recommended. 15 and 16ft rods are popular but, with modern lines, anglers are increasingly using rods of 12 to 14ft. Shrimp flies work well along with the traditional Stoat’s Tail and Silver Stoat.
World spey casting champion Scott Mackenzie will be in attendance along with SGAIC instructor David Mateer. They will be assisted by coaches and members of Inverness Angling Club.
The day will start at the Highland Hospice at 9am for bacon rolls tea and coffee, introductions and safety briefing.
Then it’s off to the river in following groups:
New to fishing, with a little experience
Ladies who go fishing
Lunch will be back at the Hospice, for everyone, which overlooks the river.
The afternoon session will start at 2pm and ladies will be fishing until 4.30pm when it’s back to the hospice for Tea, coffee and cake with a debrief.
Ladies who have their own equipment can carry on fishing into the evening.
The cost for the day including fishing permit, tuition and food is £55 per lady.
