Hi Mike,

Thanks for the information. I'm a member of this club. There are two beats can hold fish all year around and a lots of trout water. There are only about 20 members in this club, so the most of evening I will be my own on the beat. The only thing you need to consider is that the car parks are at both end, you need to do some walking :z4. If you need someone to endorse you, please drop me a message.  (150 for adult member, 75 for senior) Cheers.

Happy Chinese new year and tight lines!

Mark

Hi All
Just to follow on from Mark's comment (thanks Mark)
We have a small membership at the club and plenty of occasions to fish the beat on your own.

IMHO Its a cracking beat with plenty of brownies with some lumpers in there as well. My PB is 4lb but I've seen bigger during some tagging work with the Don Trust. Salmon,  as Mark suggested tend to hold in a couple of deep pools but can be caught throughout the beat and throughout the season a nice variety of water.
Walking the banks is easy due to grazing and some new styles have improved access over fences. We also have just secured some additional car parking in the middle of the beat, which will help cut the distance to the pools. Were presently revamping the beat map but have a look on Fishpal Kemany AC fishery description for more details

Two visitor permits are available per day ( Monday to Saturday) excluding October.
The day fishing permits are available from Sloans of Inverurie and FishPal
Annual Membership is available to residents of Kemnay and the surrounding area. Adult (150), Concession (75) and Junior (25) memberships are available. Associate (150) memberships are available to non-residents when endorsed by a member.
