Sportsmen descending upon Kenmore in Highland Perthshire for the opening of the Salmon Season on January 15th, 2008, will enjoy a significant bonus this year. The holy grail for any field sports enthusiast is to â€œbag a Macnabâ€, a brace of Grouse, a Stag and a Salmon in the same day. This year all those who attend the event will enjoy the opportunity to try the finest tools available to aid them in their quest.
â€œMacNabâ€ shotguns and rifles are already established as the finest tools available to the dedicated shot. At Kenmore, on the 15th of January, MacNab will be unveiling its new range of Salmon rods, designed to offer the fisherman the same high quality experience that their guns offer the shot. Visitors to Kenmore will be able to test both the Macnab rods and the MacNab shotguns during their visit as Macnab have organised both fly-casting and clay shooting competitions throughout the day, which are open to all comers.
Phillip Wright of MacNab says, â€œ We are delighted to have the opportunity of making the Salmon Opening at Kenmore the launch point for our rods. We believe that the fishing community will recognise the quality of the workmanship and materials that we have used in developing what we believe to be the finest Salmon rods ever to be constructed. â€œ
The development of the MacNab rods is the latest manifestation of the company's ambition. â€œWe want the MacNab name to be synonymous with the finest equipment for the field sports enthusiastâ€, says Wright. â€œ Giving those attending the Salmon Opening the chance to use our products themselves enables us to establish the quality of the MacNab brand in the minds of our potential customersâ€.
The fly-casting competition, using the new MacNab rods, will take place at the Kenmore recreation ground and transport is provided to the quarry for those who wish to participate in the clay competition using MacNab guns. A range of prizes that reflect the calibre of the MacNab brand will be presented to the most successful participants.
