Ladies’ Day a Big Success

We held a ladies’ day at Invery/Tilquhillie on 21 August. Craig Mcdonald, who ghillies at Cambus O May, led the instruction, taking the ladies through building blocks of a cast. Craig completed his Scottish Game Angling Instructors’ Certificate (SGAIC) in April and was impressive throughout the day. After a while they were soon into the swing of it and spent a very enjoyable time on the river. Craig was assisted by ghillie Karl Revel, who was his usual enthusiastic, welcoming self. The ladies were really spoiled as Gary Scott, AAPGAI and Graeme Simpson, AAPGAI also dropped by to lend a handwith the casting. Tara Speirs and Shona Mutch, who own Tilquihillie, put on a wonderful lunch for everyone and Clair Kerr of Orvis, who provided all the kit, dropped by with ‘goody bags’ and gave a short talk about the products services on offer from the store in Banchory. It was another great day out on the Dee!
