I would like to personally thank everyone at the club involved in the social night as it was a great success and allowed me to catch up with friends old & new in a great atmosphere. Although I couldn't drink due to driving it was great watching everyone enjoying themselves and next year with better planning I will take everyone up on the offers of a Dram or three.
The raffle was kind to me and won on 2 occasions the first I could have had my very own floats away but I doubt I would have been allowed to leave the building alive,so chose something different and passed it onto another member and second a few brownie points from the wife for the perfume set.
Tommy finally got the floats and good luck using them as he has only recently started trotting.
These three hoodlums Munro, Dave & Mark made excellent company but I hate to think what Munro & Dave were doing in the photo.......Answers on a postcard please. Yvonne if you read this Munro needs a bigger shirt this one is too small...lol
One OLD friend Billy (Enjoy the floats mate) and one new friend Dave enjoying the night
Thanks to Alby & the other lads for the use of their photographs from the night.
The next few hours seen me connect & loose another 5 fish which were in the same weight bracket then finally snap on a fish which I suspect was a large Out of season trout.

It was dark before Munro & I finally met up again at the car and my total for the day was 11 out of season trout whilst Munro had better luck with 7 Grayling and 5 out of season trout.
We drove home weary but both very contented and I was still very much on a high over the lady from yesterday.
A thoroughly enjoyable weekend with some Giant Grayling and seems very much timed to perfection as on the drive home today past where we had been fishing you could not get anywhere near the river as it has now burst its banks and is up in the neighbouring fields from the amount of torrential rain through the night.
