Parkview Fishery Fundraiser
12th February 2022
When Parkview Fishery host our fundraiser each year you know that spring is just around the corner and that the new season isn't far away. Jim and Edna provided a welcoming bacon roll and a facility for friends to meet up again before sorting out tackle from bags that probably hadn't seen the light of day for many months. The day got off to a chilly start but other than intermittent squally showers conditions were pretty good and the fish were willing to show themselves with the twenty one competitors recording a catch of 132 fish. First fish of the day fell to Glen Lamont who managed to net it before some had put a line on the water.
Pies and sandwiches were provided for lunch by Jim and Edna and competitors had the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets with a chance to get one or two winning tickets for a tablefull of prizes. The teams wish to thank Wullie Simpson for organising this event with the fishery on our behalf; Jim, Edna and Wullie at Parkview, and our own Jock Kettles (the prizemaster), Peter Auchterlonie, Andy Dunn and Ian Wilson who assisted on the day.
Top rod on the day was Brian Mackenzie who had 18 fish which was 4 clear of second placed Michael Low who had 14. Brian, who is captain of the autumn team that will be going to Wales, has an amazing record at the fundraisers having also been a winner in 2016, 2019 and 2020. Third place had to go to a time check with the spot going to Kenny Gray with his 13 fish. Rab Maxwell was fourth with his 13 fish and Ronnie Gilbert was fifth with 9.
