Kirkcowan Fishing Competition - 13th August 2016

14 July 2016

Galloway Fisheries Trust will be holding the annual Kirkcowan Fishing Competition on Saturday 13th August.  Entry is on the morning of the competition from 08:30 - £7 adult/£3 junior - at the Craighlaw Arms in Kirkcowan.

Beats are available on the Tarf and Bladnoch and these will be drawn at the time of entry to the competition.  Anglers can return to the Craighlaw Arms from 16:30 on the day, where the GFT will begin selection of winners.  All salmon (and pike >5lbs) must be returned (by law under new Scottish River categorisations and the River Rules of the Bladnoch District Salmon Fishery Board).  All fish caught can be entered into the competition by photo entry and your entry beat card should be placed beside the fish so that a size can be estimated from any photos entered.  

We look forward to welcoming anglers, new faces and old, to another fantastic fishing competition on the 13th August!  Thank you to Tina from the Craighlaw Arms for her continued support of this event and to the many people, including donors, who work hard to put this event together.    

For any further information, please contact Jamie or Rowan at the GFT office.
