Ayr Sea Angling Club have arranged presentations from two leading Scottish Charities involved in sea angling.

Firstly we have invited the Sustainable Inshore Fisheries Trust ( along as a follow up to the Scottish Government’s Clyde 2020 seminar held in April. Click the image below for a summary note from SIFT outlining their views and position on the Clyde. It will be good to hear from them first hand on how they are progressing their campaign and also give us anglers a chance to have some engaging discussions with them on the Clyde. SIFT’s aim is to promote the sustainable management of Scotland’s inshore waters so that they provide the maximum long term benefits to all coastal communities.

We have also invited along the Scottish Sea Angling Conservation Network ( ) to give a presentation on their currant activities. Click the image to the left for a SSACN invite noting some history of the Clyde. SSACN is an independent Charity focusing on marine conservation issues, especially those affecting sea anglers. Their primary goal is to work in conjunction with others to help ensure future fish stocks.

Presentations will be given, then the floor will be opened to general discussion.

We would all love to see the Firth Of Clyde back to the former world class fishery that it once was, although it may well never be that good again I do believe that there is a genuine desire from many of the stakeholders to see change and only through collaboration and dialogue is there any chance of the government taking the necessary action by putting measures in place that will allow a sustainable recovery of the Clyde Ecosystem.

The event is open to all sea anglers or indeed anyone with an interest in the Firth of Clyde so please ask your friends along ( screaming and shouting if need be ) … the event will be held at:
