The end of another year is nearly upon us and before we know it the 11th of January and the opening day of the season will be here.
The decision was taken a few months back not to hold the annual opening day dinner with the ongoing coronavirus that continues to grip the country. The first cast was due to go ahead on the morning of the 11th but unfortunately with the country essentially put into lockdown with the current tier 4 restrictions the first cast has been postponed. Hopefully this ceremony can take place at a later date.
Unlike the full lockdown back in April and May Angling is still permitted under the tier 4 restrictions provided contact with fellow anglers is kept to a bear minimum outside and not in the lunch Huts.
On behalf of both the River Thurso & Ulbster Arms teams we would like to wish all our friends and quests and happy new year and we look forward to seeing you all again throughout the year
Stay safe and good health for 2021
