We had our opening day to day and a big thanks to the fifty or so anglers who turned up,it was good to see some old faces and great to see some new ones.
As today was dedicated to the memory of Gordon Shannon we thought it only fit that his family were asked to attended

After we were piped to the river for the official opening our chairman gave a short speech.

The fist cast of the season.
We would also like to thank the Carmyle Bowling Club for the use of the facilities in their club house and especially Anna for supplying the committee with endless pots of coffee before it all started.
And of course The Shannon family for what must have been an emotional day.
