PGL Angling 2022

The result of today's PGL Angling Competition for The Breachaich Trophy was as follows.

Winners were Alan Brock and Don McPherson of Lodge St. Michael No.38.....Again! Congratulations, I think that's 3 years running. You should get to keep the trophy!

The best individual basket outwith the Winning Pair was Ian MacGregor of Lodge Tay & Lyon No. 276.

The best fish outwith the Winning Pair and Best Basket was SPGM Martin Cockburn. Well done Bubbles, who said you never win?

Sadly only three Lodges and the PGL took part but at least every competitor caught fish.

Our thanks go to Don McPherson of Lodge St. Michael No.38 for making the arrangements and to the SPGM for officiating.

Hopefully next year will see a return to a normal number of competitors.
