Fishing Competition

Sunday 12th Aug 2018 Burns Fishery Tarbolton

The Annual Fishing competition of the PGRAC of Lanarkshire MW took place on 12th August 2018 at Burn’s Fishery Tarbolton. It was quite well supported with Thirteen brethren and companions. There was a number of guests supporting the event from Mid and East Lothian, Ayrshire and Rutherglen.

The weather was very mixed with heavy rain showers and fish hard to find with only a total of 10 fish being caught. Despite this an enjoyable day was had by all and I would thank the fishery for all they did for us and for lunch. We will be donating 50 to PGRAC funds.

The winner of the trophy for the Province was Companion Craig Monk of East Kilbride Chapter 781 with 3 fish for 5 pounds 4 oz.

The winner for the guests was companion Billy Boe of Dalry Chapter 91 with 2 fish for 3 pounds 12 oz.

The heaviest fish was won by companion Craig Monk with a weight of 2 pounds 7oz.
