TheĀ  Show was held on Sunday 19th March 2006. at the Nissan Sports and Social Club. Once again the Club took a stand but the attendance was not as good as last year. Perhaps this was due to the usual date in February not being available or was it due to the change of name to "Fly Fishing Show" instead of "Game Fishing Show".


The Annual General Meeting of the Club was held on Wednesday 01 February 2006 at the Birtley Golf Club starting at 8pm. Unlike last year there were no nasty surprises. We have not lost any water in the year but as yet we have been unable to replace the rods we had on the R. Garry. Members were pleased that no changes to subscription levels were proposed (Accepted nem con.), also there are no changes to price of Day Tickets on sale to the general public for Thornton Steward Reservoir. The Committee were re-elected "en bloc" - so we must be doing something right - but notice was given that I would not be standing next year. Any member who would like to take my place on the Committee, to look after this website, and the "Stats" for Thornton Steward - let the Secretary know, please. The new Season for Salmon (and Migratory Trout on Scottish rivers) has already started with the arly-season restrictions in place until 16 June.
