november outing

A good turn out by members for this outing and the chance to meet and fish with pac General Secretary Graham Slater.'Thanks for making the time to come and meet us graham'.the weather was a lot better than forcasted but i fear the freezing temps the night before might have put the fish off a wee bit.Well done to my boat partner for the day Andy Grant who landed the biggest of the day at 16lbs(his first pike to a boat),Rab Hay had a nice 14.08lbr and lost another fish and Jim Morrice had a couple to the lures.

A great day out and many thanks to all that attended.Below is a happy Andy with his fish.
