Welcome To The Laurencekirk & District Angling Association Web Site

We offer good wild brown trout, sea trout and salmon fishing to members and to non members by day or weekly ticket. Brown trout fishing is available on both The Bervie and Luther Waters 7 days a week, salmon and sea trout fishing Monday to Saturday only. 
By law here is no Sunday fishing permitted for migratory fish on Sundays in Scotland. Please look in the Permits section (top menu) for more details.

The Luther Water is a major tributary of The North Esk. The river is a noted brown trout fishery holding large stocks of fish and producing good runs of sea trout and salmon, particularly during periods of high water and from September to the end of the season.

The Bervie Water
is well known as a sea trout and salmon fishery, often producing very large fish. Again this is mainly during periods of high water and from September to the end of the season. The Bervie is also a very underrated brown trout fishery where the stealthy, adaptable and cunning fly fisher can find very good sport

We are always looking to recruit new members to the association, please look in the Membership section (top menu) for more details.

Club Outing To Loch Earn 15-06-2015

The club had a very successful day at Loch Earn on Saturday 13th June.

4 boats, 8 anglers and over 80 fish caught, all returned apart from 2.

Eric Greig had the only rainbow of the day which was a 12lb -ish escapee, (well it was an escapee until Eric caught it!).

Kenny Thomson had a brown of around the 6lb mark which we didn't get a proper picture of because he couldn't get it in the boat without harming it. It was released while still in the water.

Best fly on the day was probably the Clan Chief, with the usual suspects; Kate Mclaren, Green Peter, Dunkeld etc also accounting for fish.

A fine time was had by all.

The LDAA don't fish competitions having moved onwards and upwards from that scene several years ago.
