Free Coaching Event!

The Scottish Federation for Coarse Angling has announced that it will be hosting both the Senior Celtic Cup and Junior Celtic Cup competitions at Magiscroft Fishery near Cumbernauld in August 2011.
Magiscroft Fishery from the air
The Senior competition takes place over two days on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th August with the Junior competition taking place on Sunday 14th August.

The events, which will see the best senior and junior match anglers from Scotland, Wales and Ireland compete for the title of Celtic Cup Champions, provide a unique opportunity for the public to come along, support the teams and also find out how to get involved in the sport.

This year the SFCA will have coaches on site on both Saturday 6th August and Sunday 14th August to answer angling related questions and also provide the chance for youngsters to try fishing for the first time and catch their first fish.
A great way to get youngsters into angling!
SFCA Chairman Gus Brindle said, “We hope that this event will be a real showcase for the sport of coarse angling in Scotland. The profile of the senior team was raised hugely following the recent televised Fish O Mania Home International on SkySports 2/HD2 but we still need to do more to raise awareness of opportunities that exist up here in Scotland.”

So why not come along, bring the family, get behind our boys as they try to regain these prestigious titles and perhaps even trying fishing for yourself.

Magiscroft Fisheries has an ‘on site’ cafĂ© with disabled access and facilities.

Fly...

Film maker Ronnie Goodwin sent us a link to his latest awesome short film! Filmed at Carman Trout Fishery near Renton, a place we have fished many times.

FLY from Ronnie B. Goodwin on Vimeo.
Ronnie says 'While I have been waiting on results, replies for jobs and applying for positions on other projects, I decided I should make another short film about the two things I love most, film making and fly fishing.


It took more than 10 days to gather the little moments for this film, with one of the sequences that I shot last year, but it had to be seen again, the piece where the Dragon fly and the Damsel fly bump heads, a special moment.


Big thanks to, David Clements for the assistance, and to Angelo, John, Kevin and Johnny from the Carman Trout Fisheries for the support during the filming of this little piece.'

Fish of the Month July Entry - Naver Salmon!

Allan Hutton sent us this picture of one of his first ever Salmon, and his story is below...

Allan and his Salmon
I went fishing for Salmon for the first time in my life on Monday 18th July 2011. The location was the River Naver in Sutherland. I was fishing the Bettyhill Angling Club beat. What a day I had! My first ever Salmon was caught in the morning after fishing for just an hour. It was a modest fresh Grilse with sea lice, weight was estimated at 2 3/4 lb. I fooled the fish with a Cascade variant I had tied the night before at my holiday caravan. Then a few hours later I hooked into another Salmon this time a lot bigger but in the nerve wracking fight that ensued it broke my leader right down at the fly. The same fly that caught my earlier fish.we stopped for lunch and left the river for a couple of hours. We arrived back at the river and I opted to fish Ally's pool. I could not believe my luck when I hooked into my third Salmon of the day  this time with a shrimp pattern I had tied. The fish took off like a train and leaped from the water a few times trying to throw the hook. I held on for dear life my knuckles got battered by the reel handle as I struggled to adjust the drag . I also burned my fingers with the fly line such was the power of this fresh run fish. Eventually after many heart stopping runs and dives I got the silver beauty under control and manouvered the fish into the bank where my friend netted the fish for me. I just sat down on the bank and shook my head in disbelief.I repeated my self over and over again, "I couldn't believe it".The photo doesn't do the Salmon any justice. So Monday the 18th of July 2011 will be remembered in the same way that I remember births, deaths and marriages in my family,Yes it was that special to me.The day I caught my first two Salmon and lost another. The pic I have sent is of the third Salmon. I estimated the fish to be about 7lb in weight.

Coming Soon - The Sage ONE


In the last 12 months some exceptional high end fly rods have been launched by the biggest names in fly fishing, proving that fly fishing can still move forward with improvements and technological advances. Rods like the Guideline Reaction, the G.Loomis NRX and of course the Hardy Zenith and Proaxis rods have wowed fly fishers all over the world and have sold like hotcakes - amazing considering the current financial climate! But one well known brand has been pretty quiet, but obviously working away in the background on something big, and in September 2011, Sage will be launching the new ONE rod series.

The ONE will be the first fly rod to take advantage of Sage’s latest Konnetic technology, the most recent evolution in fly rod innovation, using new materials and manufacturing processes. This new technology incorporates an optimized ratio of Sage’s proprietary resin with an exclusive, high modulus, aerospace grade carbon fibre.
Click to enlarge
The latest construction methods include Sage’s Advanced Modulus Positioning System (AMPS), a process that precisely aligns and positions carbon fibre materials to exacting tolerances for the greatest blank strength, delivering extremely efficient energy transfer throughout the shaft. Using Sage’s High Compression Moulding process, carbon fibres are compacted for optimum density and precise alignment while simultaneously fusing the 50 percent lighter all carbon fibre inner core. The inherent strength of Konnetic technology allows ONE rods to have a lower blank diameter as well as being 25 percent lighter than current Sage rod models. These attributes provide better aerodynamic efficiency and lower swing weights. The ONE blanks offer exceptional tracking with virtually no lateral or torsional movement, resulting in what Sage claims is unparalleled casting accuracy.

“The ONE rod becomes a true extension of the angler’s arm,” notes Sage Chief Rod Designer, Jerry Siem. “It offers a more fluid transmission of energy from the arm to the fly. The eye sees the cast it wants to make and is translated to the hand through the rod instantaneously.”

The fast action ONE rod range is intended for all fishing conditions thanks to a list of high end features. A custom cork handle is fashioned in a snub-nose, half-wells grip on the 3 weight up to the 6 weights and a full wells handle with fighting butt on the 6 weight up to 10 weight rods. Each handle is designed to match the exact taper of the rod providing even greater sensitivity and feel.
The classy Back Ice finish on the ONE Series
Further innovations include the 70% lighter, low profile ferrules that help direct and carry energy through the rod without sacrificing strength, critical action and feel. The Sage designed round eye tip ring never pinches or binds the line, allowing the caster to mend and cast in any direction with full control.

On the 3 weight up to 6 weight rods, an elegant walnut insert is married with a bronze anodized aluminium reel seat. 6 weight and upwards the rods feature an all anodized, salt water proof reel seat.

The ONE Rod comes in a new Black Ice colour, which has a translucent finish and is complemented by black wrappings with a bronze trim. Each rod comes with the usual protective aluminium rod tube with Sage medallion and a hand-made rod sock.
Powder coated Aluminium rod tube
“The ONE Rod is smooth and precise with an intentionally forgiving ‘sweet spot’ that complements widely diverse casting styles,” says Eric Gewiss, Sage’s Marketing Manager. “This helps the angler make a full range of close in and long distance casts that hit the mark with equal ease. Being able to feel exactly what the line is doing through all stages of the cast gives anglers ultimate control so they can make the micro-adjustments needed to place the fly precisely where it’s wanted.”

Already award winning, the ONE rod has been recognized as the “Best New Fly Rod” at EFTTEX 2011. Award ceremonies were held last week at the EFTTEX show in Amsterdam.

The ONE rod will be available from Glasgow Angling Centre from September 2011 with a selection of 22 single hand rods ranging from 3 weight up to 10 weights and will be priced from £635 to £669.

Costa del Mar unveil new Fish Sculptures!

Costa Fish Scupltures
Call it a case of art imitating life. Costa del Mar recently unveiled fish sculptures of a Tarpon, Blue Marlin and Bass, built entirely out of its own sunglasses parts, in its new advertising campaign.
Blue Marlin
A mix of lenses, hinges, frame arms, nose pads, side shields and retainer cord segments from hundreds of Costa sunglasses went into building the mounted fish sculptures , currently on display in full page colour ads in various publications.
Large Mouth Bass
Each fish was built using the sunglasses lens colour and frame technology necessary to catch that particular species. The Blue Marlin model glows with dozens of Costa's 580™ Blue Mirror lenses as scales and silver and black frame arms as fins. Side shields and retainer cords add realistic detail to the Billfish body.
Costa Tarpon
Green Mirror lenses, nose pads and hinges work together to create a life like bass fish form. For the tarpon's scales, more than 150 Costa 580™ Silver Mirror and Grey lenses were used. The fish also features frame arms to shape the fins and mouth, with a Costa 'C' logo accentuating its eye.

Check out this short video on the making of the sculptures!



You can buy Costa del Mar glasses from GAC both instore and online, and for more info check out this previous article.

River Dee Trust Auction

A truly magnificent opportunity awaits two fishermen who wish to come and experience the cream of River Dee fishing. Through this process they will help the conservation and restoration work of the River Dee Trust and support the Angling For Youth Development (AFYD) charity that encourages youngsters into angling. We have secured a week’s prime fishing and accommodation to go to auction to secure funds for both the River Dee Trust and AFYD. The auction will run until closing date of 31st August with the highest bids visible on the FishPal website auction page. Bids can be submitted for this fabulous week online at the FishPal Auction page or alternatively written bids can be submitted to: River Dee Trust, River Office, Mill of Dinnet, Aboyne, Aberdeenshire, AB34 5LA
Premier River Dee Fishing Week
The Premier River Dee Fishing Week comes as a complete lot comprising the following:

12th/13th September 2 days fishing for two rods at Lower Crathes and Upper Durris.

14th/15th September 2 days fishing for two rods at Dinnet.

16th/17th September 2 days fishing for two rods at Crathie.

11th/12th September 2 nights accommodation at Tor Na Coille Hotel Banchory including breakfast.

13th/14th September 2 nights accommodation at the Loch Kinord Hotel, Dinnet including breakfast.

15th/16th September 2 nights accommodation at the Darroch Learg Hotel, Ballater including breakfast.
A fine fish from Dinnet
These beats provide a wonderful opportunity for anglers to experience truly world class fishing potential with beats that are arguably the very best that the River Dee has on offer. Last year for instance Lower Crathes rods landed 114 salmon in September, Dinnet landed 35 and Crathie landed 92 which gives an indication of how prolific these beats can be. The River Dee Trust is indebted to Arni Baldursson, Edward Humphrey and Simon Blackett for generously donating these days to the River Dee Trust. The River Dee Trust would also like to thank Phillip J Fleming and the Tor Na Coille Hotel, Andrew and Jenny Cox and The Loch Kinord Hotel and Nigel and Fiona Franksand at The Darroch Learg Hotel for providing bed and breakfast to the visiting anglers during their weeks stay on Deeside.
Fishing at Crathie
The lucky winner of the Premier River Dee Fishing Week auction lot will be notified at the close of auction and information about the week’s fishing week will be supplied. As this fishing is not generally available it would attract a premium and a guide price for this would be in the region of £4,000. Information about each of these beats can be found on the fishery descriptions page on www.fishdee.co.uk . Good luck to all bidders and thanks for your anticipated support.

Supporting Get Hooked On Fishing

One of the core values of Glasgow Angling Centre is Contribution, which is why we are so passionate about helping all anglers get the best out of the sport.  However we also know the powerful and positive impact fishing can make to young people's lives in terms of creating a pathway toward further education, training and employment!  Therefore that's why Glasgow Angling Centre's MD, Paul Devlin, has become a trustee of the national fishing charity Get Hooked on Fishing, and supports them the best he can to reach out to more and more young people ........

GHOF Trustee - Paul Devlin
I would like to introduce you to Get Hooked on Fishing - a National Charity of which I am currently a trustee.
Get Hooked on Fishing (GHOF) is the principal case study for research commissioned by the Big Lottery Foundation (www.anglingresearch.org.uk/youngpeople). In 2010 GHOF worked with 5,576 young people across the UK, and our work is held in high regard at both national and regional government.

GHOF uses angling as an intervention tool in some of the most deprived areas of the UK, to inspire disengaged young people. We deliver a range of angling and environmental related activities suitable for young people of all abilities. Our measured outcomes include increased levels of self-esteem, confidence, employability, a transformation in young people's behaviour and their relationship with society and school.

GHOF

We also offer a range of activities designed to maintain and develop interest, including:
 · Sports coaching and Environmental Education.
· Community restoration projects · Peer mentoring
· ‘Catch and Cook’ healthy lifestyle programmes
· ASDAN, AQA, OCN, BTEC and other accredited courses, curriculum matched.

Our vision is to establish a sustainable social enterprise network throughout the UK. To engage in the region of 20,000 young people, per year, in positive activities, including angling and environmental studies, with a focus on engaging disaffected young people to create new pathways toward further education, training and employment. 

We are looking for a trustee with skills in education, youth work and/or business to join our trustee board. The main purpose of the role is to influence and build strategic support for our work with young people at risk of social exclusion. We are also looking for volunteers across the UK, especially in the central belt of Scotland where we are setting up another project. Find us at www.ghof.org.uk
