When I returned home from Kefalonia, there was an email waiting for me from Robby Tuck-Brown, the new club secretary, introducing himself to the members, laying out his ideas for the club as he attempts to steer it into the next decade. Asking for advice, and input, from the membership as to what they would like from their club and the committee in the coming year? He finished his piece with a request for members to join a work party at Scroggin's - Saturday 6th Oct at 09.30 hrs. I made a mental note of the date and said to Bev that I'd nip across to help out, but also to introduce myself to those members present, Robby in particular. So I left home just before 05.30 hrs, this morning, headed for The Wantsum for a quick pike session, before making the short drive across to Marshside to join the other guys involved in weed clearance and general tidying of the fishery. I don't need to dwell upon the pike fishing, there's nothing to report - absolutely zilch!
|My kit set up on Scroggin's - anyone can spend a day at this beautiful fishery for £10 or £5 for|
an evening ticket.
|The Carp Porter Mk II - just the job for getting my kit out to my swim. So much easier than trying to carry it all!|
|It was because of using this old school tackle that Mick Jones (the bailiff) and I started chatting;|
which, in turn, led to me getting invited to join this fantastic angling club - The Wantsum AA.
