Latest PDAA News
PDAA again supported the Perth Rotary Club's Silent Auction, by donating a day's salmon fishing for two persons, with a PDAA guide,at Upper Delvine, to be taken before 20th August 2017. This lot was sold for £90 and this will go to charities, supported by Perth Silent Auction.
At the AGM it was decided to keep the membership subscriptions at the 2016 rates, Senior £190, OAP £150, Youth £85, Junior £10. New members can apply for membership now, check the website for details, by filling in an application form on line, or downloading, filling in and posting to John Cook , Association Secretary, 36, Spoutwells Road, Scone, Perth PH2 6RW. Both, new senior members, and new OAP members, pay £190 for the first year of joining , the age discount applies only after completing the first year. There is no more to pay after this, except for loch trout fishing on Glensherup,The White Loch and Fingask which are heavily subsidised, and offered at very good prices to members.The salmon fishing will be almost the same as 2016, but work is ongoing to increase the Lower Scone summer permits, watch this space for developments! Note that the Oakbank beat of the River Ericht will not be available to PDAA in 2017. Over the winter BRDAA are carrying out bank clearance on their beat of the River Ericht to allow easier access to the beat in 2017, which PDAA can fish, via their guest permits.
Glensherup trout fishery is open throughout the winter, dependant on weather, and sport at times can be good. PDAA has been in discussion with the fishery manager Andy, regards members hiring a motor and battery, if they do not have their own. This is now in place, and assuming the member phones up the day before, and books a motor and battery, this will be ready and waiting the next day. A charge of £10 will be payable at Glensherup on the fishing day, and P.D.Malloch's are not involved, apart from paying the boat booking fee. As mentioned before, the fishery manager is extremely flexible, so give him a call if you wish to fish on different days to Monday,Wednesday and Friday, and if boats are available this can be arranged.
