Every casting day, Willo and I arrive around 6:30 am and start to set up the area. Around 7:15 am, young Jim
Strong turns up, sets out his own gear, then wanders over and offers to give us a hand. Small tasks at taken care of by Jim which
allows Terry and me to sort out our own gear, and grab a cup of coffee.
So what, you say? Well how about young Jim celebrating his 80th birthday, being the oldest active club member also and still going
"Strong". We wish you all the best, Jim, and look forward to your company in the future.
Last month was a great day for casting, despite the rain (autumn has come!) and along with many visitors, turned out to be a good
competition. Distance cast in both divisions by Chas Riegert, 166 metres for 112 gram and 130 metres for artificial bait, gave
him top honours.
