An Angus-based Scottish Wild Salmon Company has announced that they have cast their net further by acquiring angling and salmon netting rights in an estuary north of Aberdeen.
The company is a brand name of Usan Salmon Fisheries Ltd., based between Arbroath and Montrose, and will now be able to fish in the Ythan estuary and adjacent foreshore.
The firm was established in the 1960s and remains one of the last salmon netting operations in Scotland.
George Pullar, director, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have acquired these splendid sea trout and salmon fishing rights.
“Given our long association with wild salmon and sea trout in Scotland, we look forward to managing these long-established rights, in a sustainable manner, working in partnership with the angling community to open up access opportunities for anglers of all ages and backgrounds.”
