The big day

We had our opening day yesterday and had a great turn out estimated at 100
Thankfully the weather was kind to us as we headed off behind the piper on the march to the river.
Our Chairman John McClean gave a speech where he thanked everyone for attending.

Next Baillie Anne Simpson said a few words and officially opened the season 2013.

John then toasted the river 

Jacob Kerr was asked to have the first cast and get the season under way.

Some of the  MCAA committee and Baillie Simpson
We also held a minutes silence for Mr Eddie McVey  one of your members who sadly died a couple of weeks  ago. 

Then we all headed back to the club for some refreshments.

Thanks to David Reid from for his video footage

On behave of the committee I would also like to thank Carmyle Bowling Club for once again offering us there facilities to use.
Baillie Anne Simpson for the opening ceremony.
And finally, everyone who turned up and made it a great day.

I received an email from Scott Rutherford from to say he landed and returned  a two and a half pound Trout at Greyfriers on a Toby.Well done Scott.

On a sadder note he went on to say that he saw an angler with a dead Kelt, approached him to ask him about it and show him the tell tale signs that it was indeed a Kelt.
Guys it is illegal to take unconditioned fish and at this time of year if you do hook a fish there is a 95% chance it will be a Kelt.
Have a look at the Salmon recognition chart and please put them back if you have any doubts.
Tight lines.
