News by Month



When I announced the cancellation of the AGM a few weeks ago, I undertook to publish a number of documents on the website by today.

Since then, as you are all more than aware, the situation with COVID-19 has grown progressively more serious and I have unfortunately found myself diverted to other critical tasks at work.  I have however not forgotten the commitment that I made, and you will have already seen the recently published report from Policy Officer, Ron Woods.  

I have today updated and uploaded the final version of the SFCA Annual Business Plan for 2019/20 which can be downloaded by clicking the link below.  This allows you to see what we did, and indeed did not, manage to achieve in the past year against the targets that we set ourselves:

SFCA Annual Business Plan 2019/20 – Final Version 

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, I regret that we have not yet had the chance as an Executive Committee to discuss or Priorities for Action for the coming year, so I cannot publish these at this time.  I am however still committed to publishing the draft Annual Business Plan for 2020/21 by the end of April and more will follow on that in the coming weeks.

The Income and Expenditure Report for Financial Year 2019/20 can be found by clicking the link below.  The SFCA remains in healthy position to meet its objects but, with sportscotland no longer investing in Angling, we need to find new and sustainable ways to generate the income required to grow and develop our sport, particularly to deliver grass roots coaching sessions to attract newcomers.  This will need to be a major focus for the coming year.

Finally, the Chairman of Angling Scotland Ltd, Mr David Ogg, was due to attend the AGM and present a strategic overview of progress with the development of the organisation, its role, and the vision of the Board for the future of Scottish Angling.   David has kindly sent me a copy of the outline of his presentation which can be found by clicking the link below:

More information will be published over the coming weeks so please keep your eye on the website and our social media platforms.

In the meantime, follow government advice, stay safe and hopefully we will all be able to get back out onto the bank in the not too distant future.

Tight Lines,

Gus BrindleChairman SFCA
