Welcome to the Glenbuies Flyfishers Club page.Here you will find all the information about the club itself and regular up dates of what the club has been doing.
The aim of the club is friendship in angling without any politics, just a group of likeminded anglers to have some fun, fishing.It will offer members a chance to fish places they normally would never go to, but have always wished to fish. Along with other club members, it makes for a good days fishing or even a weekend break away.
Members will benefit from events organised by the club,such as monthly competitions,summer leagues,winter leagues,fly tying classes,casting improvement sessions and days and weekends to places such as mentieth or even Grafham water.Discounts have been arranged at the Glen of Rothes trout fishery for club members only.If you wish to fish for your country at International level, the club will offer you this chance if you wish to take part,be it team or individual.All presentations/cups from league competitions will be presented at an Annual dinner and dance held at the end of each year for all members.It is not competiton based rather based on friendship of like minded anglers and making fishing fun and the craic,of course!
These are only a few of the benefits of the club,but the main benefit is making new angling friends with the same aims, where you can share your hobby.
As the club grows to its maximum membership,we can include fishing on rivers,lochs for all species,it is your club afterall.
There is a limited number of members, as the club is not all about numbers of members, it is one for those who want to be part and will take part of an active club and join in with club activities where possible.
Application forms are available from the secretary or committee members or from the Glen of rothes trout fishery.All applications will be considered at the next available Committee meetings for approval.All minutes from meetings will be published for viewing on the club notice board at the fishery aswell as here and facebook for all to see.
