Whilst fishing itself is not a particularly hazardous pastime, there are a few obvious (and perhaps not so obvious) dangers that everyone should know about before setting out onto the water and throwing sharp hooks around in the air!
I have thoroughly risk-assessed the main aspects of fishing, hillwalking and camping and have separate risk assessments for fishing from boats (on inland still waters only) and for fly fishing from the sea shore.
I would insist that all prospective clients have a read of the current Assynt Fly Fishing risk assessments and do not hesitate to ask for clarification on any of the points. Also, if you are planning to head out on your own, please do take a quick look and stay safe out there!
It is also advisable to check that any holiday insurance you may have covers the activities you intend to undertake.
