Anyone who has problems with the methods on offer can contact any of our Committee and they will  provide help with the membership process.

Permit Exchange

For the 2024 season the club have agreed to exchange 4 permits with the Bervie angling club. These permits are available to any LDAA Member and give us access to the Bervie clubs beat which includes the foreshore at Inverbervie. They will, in return, have access to our beat on  Bervie water.

For full details please contact any of our Committee.

National Adult Salmon Sampling Project

The Esk District Salmon Fishery Board and Marine Scotland Science in Montrose are engaged in a project with certain beats to sample salmon caught by anglers on the North and South Esks. 
As part of the sampling, a small number of fish will be anaesthetised to allow more detailed sampling.  Fish that have been anaesthetised must not be eaten due to the toxic nature of the anaesthetic, and these fish will be marked using floy tags (see attached photo), a small strip of plastic injected into the back of the salmon near the dorsal fin.
 Please note any floy-tagged fish are NOT to be consumed if they have to be killed.
