The DAA are delighted to announce that today (Monday 1st June) we have received permission from Scottish Water to re-open Glenquey for fishing.  We are obliged by Scottish Water to do some preparatory work, which will be completed tomorrow. Glenquey will re-open for fishing on Wednesday 3rd June.

Updated 2nd June

Monas of Muckhart are not able to open until 15th June, so to simplify permit sales please note the new arrangements for permits sales noted below

From 3rd June 2020 to 14th June 2020 – Ten permits daily will be available from The Sorting Office, High Street Dolllar. NB restricted opening hours (Monday – Saturday 8am to Noon and Sundays 8am to 10am) and please where possible pay with cash [there is a free cash machine at the Co-op on the opposite side of the road]

From 15th June 2020 onwards – Five permits daily will be available from both The Sorting Office, High Street, Dollar and Monas of Muckhart (who intend to open 9am to 2pm)

Initially there will only ten permits available daily, five from the Sorting Office in Dollar and five from Monas of Muckhart (Monas will hopefully be open from Monday 15th June [TBC] but if you contact Moira at Monas, she is working periodically in the shop and will endeavor to facilitate permit sales. Moira can contacted directly on 07711 585115 or via FB messenger @ Monas of Muckhart)

In line with the guidelines set out by the Scottish Government on Thursday 28th May for Phase 1 of the Covid-19 roadmap, the Devon Angling Association will rely on anglers commonsense/conscience to minimise their journeys by car, to only fish locally and obey the requirements for social distancing, which include:

  • Obey the requirements of any notices posted
  • Anyone displaying symptoms of Covid-19 or shares a household with any individual displaying symptoms, should not go fishing and continue to follow government guidance on isolation
  • If you are in the highest risk (shielding) group outlined by the Government, then you should stay at home.
  • Angling must be undertaken on a solitary basis or only with people from your own household. Social distancing in accordance with Scottish Government guidelines must be maintained at all times.
  • Always follow good hand and respiratory hygiene guidelines e.g. washing of hands,
    use of face coverings in enclosed spaces.
  • Give due consideration to social distancing when parking vehicles, walking along banks and encountering other anglers and members of the public
  • Do not share tackle outwith the members of your household
  • Take your own food and drink to reduce potentially coming into contact with others.

Good luck!
