EYEBROOK 16-4-2011

Posted by mike On April 18th, 2011

Following the invite by the Fly Dressers Guild we were welcomed with mugs of tea and delicious bacon rolls – a very good start! We being Wendy and Alan Bath, new coach Steve Yeomans, Mark Surtees, and me.

It was a very pleasant day at Eyebrook with plenty of sunshine and a light, if changeable, breeze. There was a steady flow of anglers needing tuition, which kept us busy until the 4pm closing time, and there was plenty of complimentary feedback which is always rewarding.

The BFCC’s day was made more special by being able to welcome as new Members Alan Cain, Steve Yeomans and Paul Davis of The Guild, who all enjoyed their day. However, it just got better for Alan and Paul who achieved their 25 yard badges in less than ideal distance weather conditions. Many congratulations to them both.

Finally, Andy Miller of Eyebrook must be mentioned for being so helpful, which made getting started at a new venue for us, so much easier. Many thanks Andy!

Back then, when it was cold, very cold, wet and windy. Charles Jardine asked if I would mind being filmed by Feild and Rural Life and as my mind was numb I agreed and here it is.

 Please remember I was very cold.
