Casting Tuition on the River Ness

May 15, 2019 | Where To Fish

52440797_2424043401150777_8527623021786038272_nInverness Angling Club wish to invite members and non members, young and not so young, to the annual series of Casting Clinics which will take place on the River Ness at the Little Isle Pool every Wednesday night in June 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th from 7pm.

Accredited Club coaches will be joined by three times world Speycasting champion Scott Mackenzie, who will be giving his top tips, and instructors David Mateer and Frank Durdle.

21167983_1539428209412343_8010041324669620212_oThe clinics have a long history of helping novices to learn and master a variety of casting techniques for salmon and trout fishing. Traditional single and double Spey casts are joined by the recent developments like the Snake Roll and Snap-T.

Special efforts are made to encourage young people to attend the clinics where they can learn casting basics. These begin with trout fly casting on the grass of the Burght Park and, once the students have shown commitment and improving skills, a chance to try Speycasting with salmon rods on the river.

Any adults experiencing difficulty with their casting can also benefit from instructors’ advice.

Bring your own tackle if you wish, salmon and trout rods are available for use, thanks to the kindness of international tackle manufacturers Loop.

Everyone, including non-members and visitors are assured of a great welcome, tuition and a cuppa, all for free.
