Let fellow fly fishers know how you got on at Monikie

We're always keen to let everyone know how the fly fishing is going at Monikie Angling Club.
So if you've had a good day at Monikie, why not drop us an email at admin@monikie-angling-club.org.uk to let us know how you got on? We’d be delighted to hear from you.
Please remember that once anglers have kept their allocated rod limit of fish they must stop fishing and leave the water.
Where fishing catch and release (using barbless or de-barbed hooks) anglers must stop fishing when they have their limit, and have released 15 fish.
