Atholl Sporting was established in 2014 as we felt the existing letting agency business had become too dependent on charging fees either on both sides of the let or at levels of commission which frankly are too high given the technology now available. Atholl Sporting has steadily grown to become one of the largest sporting agencies in Scotland with an enviable list of clients
With Iain’s experience as CEO of FishPal and having been the main point of contact for all lettings, we feel Atholl Sporting have the depth and experience to offer a seamless transition of your lettings business.
As part of our service to beats we contact each current season’s tenants offering them the opportunity to take the same fishing in the following season (subject to owner’s preferences), with the caveat that whole beat / week bookings take precedence.
If we were unable to let the fishing directly we take advantage of our extensive contact list and the various web sites available to let fishing.
We are currently developing our own proprietary booking engine which would allow anglers to book fishing directly with us for no additional charges.
As part of the letting service we liaise with the ghillie(s) on a continuous basis, advising of new lets and also acting as their point of contact to address issues such as rods failing to arrive, dispute resolution etc
We also visit beats on a regular basis to have face to face meetings with the ghillie(s) in order to address any issues with the booking process.
Where clients wish we would attend meetings on their behalf as observers or as proxy.
We would act as liaison with the District Salmon Fishery Board in relation to annual reporting of catch statistics etc.
The beat(s) appear on the Atholl Sporting web site and we actively engage with the media to encourage promotion of the beat.
It is our intention to attend major game fairs to promote our beats.
Atholl Sporting also offer full factor (management) services to beats including handling payroll, book-keeping, arranging insurance etc. and we would be delighted to discuss this service in detail with interested owners to design a bespoke package for your beat(s) or estate.
For letting services Atholl Sporting simply operate on a commission on each successful booking, at a rate which we are confident is significantly less than that charged by other agents with large overheads.
For marketing and factoring services Atholl Sporting charge a flat monthly administration fee for our services however we apply a lesser commission on each successful booking.
