Vintage Tea and Salmon Fishing on the Annan

Ladies Fishing Summer Salmon Course River AnnanThe River Annan Summer Salmon Course started this month. Some ladies travelled over 200 miles to join us for the weekend of fishing on Hoddom beat on the Annan. Again it was great to see beginners to experienced female anglers enjoying a days fishing for salmon. 

AAPGAI casting instructors Paul Little and Bert Schaff from Germany were assisted by coaches Aileen and Anne. Sessions were held during the day from introduction to salmon casting to how to fish a pool effectively.  Members from the River Annan Trust guided our experienced anglers on some of the best salmon pools on the river. Unfortunately conditions were not in our favour, the weather was hot and the river summer low.

Ladies Fishing enjoying afternoon teaThe day was finished with a selection of home baked cakes from Mary and her team at Rosy Lee & Vintage Tea. Afternoon Tea and cakes were served in beautiful vintage crockery.
