‘Time out’ for something ‘fishy’Posted on 28th August, 2013
The Birch Distribution August ‘Fun Fish’, this year was held at McCallum’s Bank End Fisheries, near Doncaster. The sun shone for us; it was warm, with a bit of breeze and plenty of cloud cover.
An enthusiastic group of customers, and one or two old friends, set themselves up for the stress and strain of the day by eating a hearty cooked breakfast, before drawing pegs and getting on with the serious(ish) business of trying to catch some fish.
The fish weren’t giving themselves up easily, but at the end of the day it was harder work for some than others. The total catch for the day was 1056lb in ‘old money’, with the top 3 spots going to Paul Wilson of RN Flooring (122lb7oz), John McCall of RN Flooring (93lb1oz) and Nick Wright of Kier (85lb11oz) respectively. Honourable mentions should also go to Scott and Simon Clarkson of Floorserve, Dave Woodburn of Elmtree Flooring Services, Brian Dickens of B. Dickens Flooring and Keith Flintoff of Flintoff Design, who all came in the top ten places.
Thanks to all those who took part for turning up and making the day such a great success. We’re already working on plans for next time.
