Scotland's Salmon Festival 2017 Dates

The Scottish Salmon Festival will be held again in 2017 in Inverness in early September and just as there was at the 2015 event there will be another International Spey casting competition this year, but this one is a very major part of the centenary celebrations of the Inverness Angling Club.

The tournament will seek an entry of 30 casters for the mens event and I personally hope there will be sufficient ladies to have an event for them - I know a couple of ladies locally who are handy casters and might be prepared to develop that talent and give it a go. With the 'Worlds' coming to the UK in 2018 it would be nice to think we could field some ladies from the UK to compete against the rest of the world.

Back to Inverness and the organisers hope that once again some of  top Speycasters from around the world will attend in what has become a highly competitive international sport. Club and festival representatives are endeavouring to complete sponsorship deals within the next few months in order to make an early start to event arrangements.

The whole festival runs from the 29th August to 2nd September and I believe the casting competition will be over the weekend.

I hope very much to be there  :z16
