The season on the Till ended on a quiet note with committee member Fred Richardson catching a grilse on Friday and member Barry Gibson catching a sea trout on the last day. So that is the rivers well and truly closed till next year. Members that have not returned their catch returns are requested to send them in to secretary Dave Wilson.

The web site will be theoretically closing down over the next couple of weeks as there will be very little to report on. The Committee however will be busy as usual seeing if any waters are available and also renewing leases which is why it is so important for members to submit their catch returns. The committee also begin to prepare for the AGM that will be held at Birtley Golf Club on Wednesday 4th February 2009 commencing at 8.00 pm. Members will be issued with the agenda and full details by post early in the new year. If we don't have any reason to update the site for the remainder of the year then on behalf of the Committee I would like to wish all our members and their families and readers of our site a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year and even tighter lines next year.
