BAC needs your support for these events; Neil McKenzie (01463 782991) is taking bookings for all the competitions.
A good deal of effort is put in by him and other club organizers to run these events. Don’t be put off by the “competition” title; these are just great days out in good company, with some quality fishing along the way. Give it a try!
