THE FISHING season got off to a ‘fly’ing start at Monikie on Saturday for members of Arbroath Angling Club.

Although the weather was dreich, it didn’t put off the die hard fishermen from their first competition of the season. Results were: 1, Bruce McAskill; 2, Scott Reith; and 3, Sye Gall. Junior winner was Keir Mudie.

The next outing will be on The River Tay. If you are interested in joining Arbroath Angling Club check out their website at for details.
