Scottish Disabled Team Fly Fishing Fundraiser At Bangour

I love going to these events,its so enjoyable to meet familiar faces who are always happy to meet & participate in a great days fishing,great Craic,& not least to show support for the SDFFA Teams International in June  at Eyebrook.

Peg 18 draw,no 3 bad I thinks,soon into a fish on a Henrik Larson timed a 9:39 am 9 mins for my 1st fish of the day a new PB,I missed another 4 and lost 2 on my 1st peg,can't complain never had that ammount of activity for a long time.

There's plenty of early action and the guys are picking up fish all over,Carl Nixon is doing well with the Yellow Dancer,allegedly,but through the day 3 guys had sussed the techniques and rattled up nearly 30 between them.

All in all it's been a great day with a super lunch of crackin pies & cakes "Stevie who ate awe the pies", 
                                                         The Spoils

28 rods with 96 fish 
Top rod was young Rhys Connor with 13 to the net

Second place Stuart Fraser with 8 a master with the Yelly Waltzer

Third was George Telford king of the buzzers with 8 just pipped by Stuart,his was the quickest 1st fish

There was also 2 doubles landed 
John Johnstone 12lb 4 oz
Wully Brash 12 lb 12 oz

The guys raised £1200 for the team which was outstanding-

STAR OF THE DAY went to Jim Crawford who raised a few bob for doing a lap of honour around the Bangour Fishery in a mankini.
