2017 ASSYNT FISHING FEIS
We did it
On 29th July 2017 we successfully raised £650 with 18 supporters in 21 days

This money will enable me to once again run a fantastic fly fishing event for everyone, visitors and locals alike!

Imagine if we could raise ALL of the funds for the final push on the Assynt Crofters Trust Wheelyboat on Loch Dumbeg! How AMAZING would that be?   

If you don't aim high, you will never reach the top!   


This will be the fifth year of the ASSYNT FISHING FEIS and every year it has gone from strength to strength!

The event has evolved and changed to best suit the people who come along for a fun day at Glencanisp and now has the clear primary aim of getting youngsters into the surprisingly simple passtime of fly fishing. All too often, fishing and in particular fly fishing is seen as something that only 'old duffers' enjoy... Of course this is absolute rubbish! It is a great way to get kids and adults into the outdoors, exploring and appreciating nature.

When originally concieved, the emphasis was more on the competition element but now the focus is much wider. Fly tying, fun games, BBQ, puppet show, information and demonstrations all combine to give a fantastic event for all ages. The open fly fishing competition still runs and there are still some awesome prizes but now the other aspects of the event have taken equal, if not greater, importance.

There is a popular fishenam's saying that most definitely applies to the Assy Fishing Feis - 

"Fishing. It's not just about the fish!"

Thank you for taking the time to look at the project, I hope you appreciate what we are hoping to do every year and if you could find just a few quid to add to our funds I would be eternally greatful!

Any funding carried over this year will be donated to the very worth cause of the Assynt Crofters Trust Wheely Boat Project. Assynt has a massive potential in the area of all abilities fishing and this is something I look forward to developing in the future.
