May's meeting will be on tuesday 4th at 8pm,the chieftain hotel,millburn road,inverness.

first bbq weekend of the year

this is what its all about,forget points,forget trophies or who caught the biggest or most fish,seeing a farther taking the time to teach his boy the importance of pike handling and welfare at such a young age can only ensure the future of the sport is bright,well done ewen and young innes.a few fish each too,cant be bad.
A big well done to sean anderson,who just joined the club and new to pike fishing,got his first ever pike on his third outing with us and at 10lb8oz is not a bad start.i think the big smile says it all!
