Great stuff Keith, thanks for the effort. Smile

Look forward to seeing you all tomorrow morning and plenty of toothy critters being caught.

Coaches from the EA are coming along and the PAC boys, so lots of effort has gone into getting this arranged. And of course its free.

Will have some TAC fleece hats and t-shirts if anyone has not got one, and would like one.

are there any of the tac hats left, if so can you put my name on one please

Hard work, only one fish landed as far as I know and a few had lures followed in by perch and one lad had a jack follow a dead bait....
Good day out though Very Happy

I never got a Goody bag though Crying or Very sad

Cheers to all who turned up, was hard going as Andy said and damn cold.

Good to see old and new faces, and lots of people fishing, good fun. Thanks to Neil D and Steve A and also the EA for providing coaches.

Will post some pics.

Cold, Wet and Windy, fish did,nt want to know, but a good time had by all, well done Dave.

Highlight of the day for me was when i tried my luck in the Dessy Cut.
Whilst retrieving my Three piece,bright orange rubber lure for yet another cast,
unbeknown to me, a group of people had gathered behind me, when i lifted the said lure out of the water,
a woman in the crowd said, "oh golly gosh, what a lovely coloured fish, what kind is it, she enquired,
Its a rubber fish, i replied, oh my god! she said, are there many in the river?
I carried on fishing.
The last i saw of them people, they were climbing up the steps to the spacecraft.

roll on the next one

Thanks mate

The cold certainly kept plenty away yesterday but good fun all the same. Here are a few pics..

Cinos cafe did very good business as people tried to keep warm, overall around 35 people came along during the morning and great to see some new members and familiar faces

Member Barry Abbott just below the bridge

Mike Box just upstream

Coach Martin Porter passing on his knowledge

Andy Shaw saves the day, well done mate

Mind your fingers

How to do it

Thanks again to everyone who turned up Smile
