Well it will soon be the Start of the 2012 Fishing Season and on behalf of Inverurie Angling Association we would like to invite you all to its Annual March to the River Don to celebrate the start of the season on Saturday 11th February.

This is open to all Anglers, families and friends.

We meet up outside of the Kintore Arms Hotel, High Street, Inverurie after 9:00am and the March starts at 09:30am.

The March is led by a Piper down to the old Road Bridge where the River will be blessed and a whisky is offered to toast the new season.

I hope you can come along and support us in what has become a great local event.

Regards,
Bri.

From 2010 .....................  :z16



The New Season ( by Raymond Bisset ) 2010

Gosh!  The water doon here, it’s lookin’ sae bra’,
Swalt in the hills wi’ a puckle o’ sna’,
Jist waitin’ for fishers aroon’ Inverurie,
Dress’d in waders, big socks and a muckle great tourie,
Tae cast in their lures wi’ the earnest intention
O catchin’ a fish wi’ sic human invention.

Their spirits are up an’ their hopes are real high,
That fish in abundance will swallie their fly,
For there’s naething tae beat the real thrill o’ a fish,
A twenty plus pounder’s a real fisher’s wish,
So it’s oot with the rod, an’ the reel an’ the line,
Tae pursue this ambition some wid class as divine.

There’s a fair puckle loons thit can cast a guid flee,
Oot ontae the waater – or stuck up a tree!
Some are pairt o’ a club, Inverurie AA,
That’s the reason we’re staunin aroon here the day,
Fou we’re gaither’t doon here on the banks of the river,
Tae listen tae Graham as his prayer he deliver.

Noo, there’s Peter an’ Brian, an’ Steven an’ Sam,
George, Gordon, Jim, Colin, they’ll aa’ taak a dram,
File gossipin’ oan’ ‘boot the monsters they’ve hook’d,
Aye – bit sometimes the real truth they dee overlook,
For they’re fishers, ye see, wi’ a host o’ guid stories
O’ battles wi’ fish an’ some ither past glories.

Bit awa’ fae their stories they work as a team,
Tae nurture an’ nourish the game angler’s dream,
O’ fishin a river that’s crystal an’ clear
Fae man-made pollution, focht year efter year,
An’ they also maak efforts tae bring tae the fore,
An interest in fishin’ – for youngsters galore.

So tae aa’ buddin’ fishers thit staun’ here the day,
I wish ye tight lines as ye gang on yir way,
Guid luck on yir visit tae Ury or Don,
An’ as for these monsters, just bring them richt on,
So come end o’ October, fin rods are put bye,
Ye’ve enjoy’d a guid season wi’ catches richt high.

As seems to be the pattern with opening day on the Don I'll be fishing elsewhere.  One of these days though.  Hope it's a good day.

Unfortunately it is my rostered day in to work on Saturday but there should be plenty other IAA guys there to give you a warm welcome.

Whisky has been bought (and so has the soft drinks), enjoy.
