At Lynebain, fishing is by fly only and we enforce a code of restraint
with a maximum of two fish to be retained in any one week, all
other fish should be returned. In addition, in September
and October all hen fish and red cock fish should be returned.We support Catch and Release and can offer guidance
in best practise of this conservation method. Furthermore, the use of barbless or pinched flies is strongly recommended to
reduce damage and increase the chance of returning fish unharmed.
We are strong supporters of the Deveron, Bogie & Isla River Board’s Code

The Gs parasite is
a highly contagious bug that has devastated salmon stocks in foreign countries, especially in Norway. We want to keep it out
of Scotland's rivers.
Here's what you need to
The Gs parasite needs a wet environment to survive. If you have
been fishing in other countries before coming to Scotland, please make sure that any watersports equipment (such as waders,
all fishing equipment, bags, canoes and windsurf gear) is completely dry before use in Scotland.
To ensure your equipment is not contaminated, please take one of the following precautionary measures:
- Dry equipment at a minimum of 20°C for at least 2 days;
- Heat for at least 1 hour at above 60°C;
- Deep freeze for at least 1 day; or
Immerse in a GS killing solution for minimum 10 minutes.
