January 2021 update

Happy New Year to all our members, visitors and friends!

Once again we find ourselves in lockdown, but hopefully there is light at the end of the tunnel with the vaccine roll out and it’s only 56 days before the fishing season opens on the Devon and at Glenquey!

While there is no point at this stage trying to predict what restrictions may be in place, eight weeks away, at least for the moment the Scottish Government seem content that angling is an appropriate outdoor activity to undertake during Covid 19 restrictions. Closer to the opening of the season we will update the website with relevant information regarding any restrictions, social distancing and permits.

There is no change to permit prices from the 2020 season

Permits will be distributed to our outlets during February, when hopefully they will be all trading by then.

As usual Dennis Toon has collated our annual newsletter which makes a really interesting read which can be read here:

DAA – newsletter – Spring 2021

With the AGM delayed, where there is normally a vote of appreciation cast,  can I on behalf of the Members and Visitors thank our Honorary Secretary David, President Bryan, our Bailiffs (Jim, Alan, Kenny & Greame) and the members of the work parties for all the hard work, time and dedication in keeping the Devon Angling Association ticking, particularly during such a challenging year. It is much appreciated!

      A February update said that some retailers had 2021 season permits, including Buick in Alloa.
      I was in the shop this week 15th Feb and was told they don’t have them.
      For sure there is no rush but is there a delay getting them out even in Clackmannanshire ?

    Never has there been a need for a Facebook page as now due to Covid.
    I heard that this is a possibility and would be a good way of keeping us anglers informed throughout the season
