Huge thanks to everyone who voted for us on the Scottish Countryside Alliance Awards. From hundreds of companies across Scotland in the rural enterprise section we managed to get down to the last 4, and attended the ceremony last night in Edinburgh.
The section covers a wide array of businesses. We didn’t win but to come in the final 4 is a huge achievement, of which we are proud of all of the team, Paddy, John Hood, Cammy, Findlay, Eilidh, Cuddy, David Brymer, Iain McLeod, Gregor Senior, Robert Miller, Greg McDowall, the late Mark Dobson, and especially my Mrs Pam Angus (marketing and web design), Robert Irvine and Brian Cairns (hardest working volunteer in the world) and my first member of staff who’s still helping me, Andy Lloyd aka Andy Fish!
Thanks to all at the Countryside Alliance who continually fight for our rights to fish and hunt and especially their Director, Jake Swindells, for all his guidance and advice over the years to get here.
Final well done to Scott Country International who won the category.
This is a ‘public only voting award’ and not one you buy for £100! So thank you very much to everyone who voted, it means the world to all the team. 
Garry and the whole team at Kinross Trout Fishery & Activity Centre.

We love a challenge at Kinross Trout Fishery

Looking for a new challenge, Garry had a few casts and decided he wanted to try and catch on bare hooks!

In less than 20 minutes he had multiple chases stripping, 2 stripping into the net on a double hook up fishing them static (snapped off by one).  Then another 2 static off the bottom.
