Hi,
Twice in the past 3 weeks I’ve swung round past Markle looking to go for a few casts only to find the gate shut, I’ve called the listed number but no answer....any ideas on what’s happening there?

cheers.

Stenhouse and Glensherup closed recently and I just heard today that Balado fishery has closed too.

Do you guys think that covid hasn’t helped the fisheries due to lack of numbers or is it just a decline in anglers in general. Really liked glensherup and stenhouse never fished the other two. It’s a sad time

Glensherup was ready to be taken over when my old man retired but when he went the deal between the new guy and the landowner fell through. Nothing to do with COVID or numbers there, it was a busy place.
I believe Stenhouse landowner wouldn’t reduce the rent on Stenhouse to an affordable level during lockdown, so you could say it has been a direct result of COVID as it was also busy.
I bet it’s not closed for long.
