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.
