Fishing should pick up on the Lower Tay, if there is to be a back end run developing.
Spent the weekend in the PDAA marquee tent with other PDAA volunteers spreading the word to encourage interested people in joining PDAA. The good dry weather brought out good crowds and plenty interest in PDAA. PDAA also donated a day's fishing at Upper Delvine as a prize which is used for the casting competitions. Also very good to see some PDAA members participating in the casting events, did not win, but put on a good show.
Come along and visit the PDAA tent on Saturday and Sunday.
