The Union Canal is of particular interest to us as many of our members are already fishing there and it passes through West Lothian via Broxburn, Winchburgh & Linlithgow, there's a lot of water to be fished even between the Almond and Avon aqueducts and it is our hope that members will take the opportunity to enjoy the coarse fishing available.
Our membership of the SFCA runs from 1st April - 31st March and will be reviewed annually at the AGM.
Fishing is 100% C&R with barbless hooks and a landing net must be used, please take care not to damage fish stocks, don't leave any litter on the bank and don't light any fires, no fishing is permitted around moorings. A full set of rules will be available on the site shortly.
The Canals can be busy at times with other users including boats, joggers, dog walkers and cyclists so be aware of this and take care not to disrupt these activities, special care is needed when pole fishing.
A new board will be added to the members forum to discuss coarse fishing so any questions should be posted there.
