SHARE AN HISTORIC RIVER
Although short, the Awe is regarded as one of Argyll’s premier salmon rivers. Flowing through spectacular scenery, it connects Loch Awe with the sea through Loch Etive. It has a remarkable history: in July 1921, Major Arthur Huntington caught a 57 lb salmon from the river, and in September 1927, his wife Gladys caught a 55 lb fish. There is now an opportunity to obtain fishing on the Huntington Salmon Fishings, the uppermost beat of the river immediately downstream from the loch. Here the salmon and sea-trout fishing rights are owned in perpetuity by 12 pro indiviso shareholders of the Huntington syndicate. For sale is a one-twelfth pro indiviso share, which allows the owner two weeks fishing for two rods. The beat extends to just under 1,150 yards of single bank, with 15 named pools. The five- and ten-year averages are 70 and 62 fish respectively.
