Glen Garioch

We are delighted to announce that in 2014 Glen Garioch 12 year old Malt Whisky are joining with present sponsors in sponsoring the Scottish Club Championship, the Champion of Champions and the Scottish National Trout Fly Fishing Championship.

One of the oldest operating distilleries in Scotland - and its most easterly - Glen Garioch (pronounced Geery in the ancient Doric dialect still spoken in these parts) has been making its mighty malt in the quaint and historic market town of Oldmeldrum, near Aberdeen in North East Scotland, ever since 1797. Shielded from the world's prying eyes, deep in the fertile 'Granary of Aberdeenshire', and only ever produced in small, precious batches, Glen Garioch is a rare find indeed, but warmly appreciated by those who like a hearty Highland malt, non chill-filtered as nature intended, with a wholesome maltiness, honeyed sweetness and delicious creamy texture to savour.

Scottish Club Championship and Champion of Champions

Glen Garioch will sponsor the Scottish Club Championship alongside Angling Active and are providing a bottle of 12 year malt whisky to the top team, top individual and captor of the heaviest basket in each of the Saturday night heats. Bottles of Glen Garioch are also to be presented in the Scottish Club Championship final and in the Champion of Champions final.

National Trout Fly Fishing Championship

Glen Garioch will sponsor the Scottish National Trout Fly Fishing Championship alongside Ridgeline UK and are providing bottles of Glen Garioch 12 year malt whisky to the top two in each heat and to the second and third in each semi final. In the final, Glen Garioch will acknowledge the support provided by the boatmen and are presenting a bottle of 12 year old malt whisky to each of the boatmen who help out on the day.

Jock Kettles, Captain of the Spring Loch Team which is going to Lough Sheelin this year, recently met with Michael Wilson of Fishers and is now able to announce that Fishers will sponsor the loch teams for the next five years.

Michael provided support to the teams last year and is now stepping up that support alongside his plans to expand Fishers. Fishers is a dedicated tackle store situated in John Street Precinct, Penicuik and is owned and run by Michael Wilson. Despite being a new company established in 2009 Fishers has experienced rapid growth with plans for expansion in 2012.

Fishers retail Game, Sea, Coarse & Predator tackle, fly tying equipment, clothing and baits most of which are available either in store or online at
www.fishersdirect.com

Michael stocks huge brands such as Hardy, Greys, Airflo, Vision, Wychwood, Rio, Snowbee, Riverge, Veniard, Flybox, Kamasan, Fulling Mill, Caledonia, Masterline, Cortland, Loon, Anvil, Drennan, Redington, Shimano, Lee Wulff, Fishpond and many more.

Michael Wilson


Michael explained that the Fishers' reputation for first class service and competitive pricing has come straight from the anglers who use us and not from bold advertising claims, leading to the decision to give something back to the sport with Fishers being a proud sponsor of the Scottish International fly fishing squad 2012.

Jock described the sponsorship as fantastic news for the teams. The cost of the internationals increases each year and when this sponsorship is put alongside all the other support that is provided for the teams and the fundraisers they run each year it means that representing Scotland at the loch internationals is affordable for all.
