Ever thought of trying your hand at fishing? But don’t know where, when or how to start? Then come along to the Elgin Angling Association’s Sea Trout Night and ask the experts.

Elgin Angling Association is hosting a free taster session on the River Lossie in Elgin for anyone interested in finding out more about fishing the river. The event on Friday the 16th of June from 6pm is free of charge and open to all ages (under 16s must be accompanied by an adult). The anglers will be based along the banks of the Lossie behind the Moray Leisure Centre in Elgin.

Expert anglers will be on hand to pass on tips on the most suitable tackle and equipment to use, and to teach the art of casting using fly and bait. For more experienced anglers they can advise on good fishing spots, and the weather and river conditions that give you the best chance of catching a fish. Tackle and equipment will be provided, but wear suitable outdoor clothing.

The River Lossie is known for its sea trout fishing. Fly fishing is encouraged, but bait fishing is allowed, opening up the angling to those who want to learn to fish without having to immediately learn the intricacies of fly fishing. Where else can you indulge in the contemplative sport of angling in the middle of a town? Turn a corner in the middle of Elgin and there is a stretch of riverbank members of Elgin Angling Association can fish from- accessible to all ages and most abilities.

Angling on the Lossie is very affordable- The Elgin Angling Association was set up with the aim to provide salmon & sea trout fishing to the people of Moray at reasonable cost. The annual permit for an adult is £60, concessions £35, and for a junior (under 16) is Free. Annual, weekly and day permits are available from The Angling Centre on Moss Street in Elgin.
