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!

Many thanks to all the members that came along to first bbq/overniter of this year,a good time was had by all,the weather was a bit dreek saturday and rained all saturday night but the sun did come out sunday afternoon to dry of the kit nicely before heading home.
a big thanks to robbie(master chef)milne for taking full command of the bbq and bringing along the venision burgers and sasauges(even if they were a bit deer)and making the best tattie salad in the highlands.
