Rod Alert Service AnnouncedFishScotland Ltd are pleased to announce the launch of their new rod alert service which will be of great benefit to salmon anglers.

Prospective anglers can register to receive email updates of rods that have been added to the general availability on any given river, whether previously unreleased by the fishery, re-let by a tenant or because of a cancellation.

The alerts are automatically sent after midnight to all registered clients whose search criteria match any new availability, which has been added in the previous 24 hours. The rods are immediately bookable on a first come, first served basis, either using the existing online booking system, or via the FishScotland call centre which is open between 9am – 5pm.


The cost for this service is £ 10 + VAT (£ 11.75) per alert registration, for any given three month period for each individual river. Where an angler wishes to know about availability on several different rivers, the costs would compound in a similar fashion.

Details of the rod alert request form found on the following web page:
