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.

The Changing Face Of The Bervie

They say a river never stands still and that is certainly true.

The Bervie is a pretty good small salmon river – that's a small river with salmon, not a river with small salmon; in fact the Bervie is noted for producing some very large salmon indeed although to see it at summer levels you might find that hard to believe.

Short, steep spate streams like The Bervie are often subject to sudden huge rises in water levels that can bring about dramatic changes as well as coaxing fish in from the sea

The pictures below are at Corbie's Pot, a well known salmon “hole” downstream of the A90 at Mill Of Mondynes. In the first photo you can clearly see where the river used to flow round in a loop and where over the years eroded the red clay bank.

The river now takes a somewhat more direct route and has cut the corner as seen in the second photo.

The power of rivers, even small rivers like this, is astonishing.
