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.

Bervie Work Parties

Below are some before and after photos of the recent bank clearing work done on the Bervie.

As can be seen this work is essential to keep good fishing water clear but it also helps to stop flooding by allowing clear passage for the water and the fish.

Well done to all members who helped with this work.





Quiz Night

Once again the quiz night on the 21st of February was a great success. 

Thanks to Graham Strachan jr for compiling the questions & to Eileen Greig for organising the nibbles etc.

We raised £287 for club funds which really helps this year as the rent for our fishings has increased by 50%.

Thanks to all for your support.

The restriction order on the Esk District has been lifted but the Fisheries Board have put together voluntary recommendations (see link below).
