University of Glasgow Staff Angling Club

Loch Ardleish

The Angling Club receives support from the Ferguson Bequest; Professor Thomas Ferguson (1900-1977), Henry Mechan Chair of Public Health (1944-1964), bequeathed his estate to the University, with the instruction that the money should be used to foster the social side of University life.

Members of the club have access to a stocked brown trout loch which has two well maintained boats (limited membership) and two hill lochs containing brown trout.

Additionally, our angling club members can fish for salmon and sea-trout on loch and river via our The Loch Lomond Angling & Improvement Association permits.

Club outings to a variety of other lochs and rivers are arranged annually by the club Secretary. There are three trophies presented each year the Neilson Trophy to the angler who records the best catch from one of the outings, the Morrison Trophy for the best brown trout from the members loch and the MacGregor Trophy for the best catch at the Lake of Menteith outing in August.

Membership of Glasgow University Angling Club is available to all categories of salaried university staff. Anyone interested in joining the Club please contact either the Secretary or Treasurer for further details.
