Dr David Summers TDSFBd
As usual our open night is open to anyone with an interest in fish or fishing and new faces are always very welcome. This year's guest speaker is Dr David Summers, Fisheries Director, Tay District Salmon Fisheries Board. David has nearly 30 years experience in the field of salmon and freshwater fisheries research and management. He initially studied with the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries for Scotland at their North Esk research station at Montrose, then spent six years working in the south of England for the Game Conservancy Trust's fisheries team. He then became the manager of the Tay District Salmon Fisheries Board in 1999 and continues to lead the team protecting and improving the Tay's salmon fisheries. His presentation will feature some historical background to the de-watering of the River Garry system and discuss the implications of the recent agreement with SSE to restore the water.

A raffle will be held to support SANDS the Stillborn and Neonatal Death Charity. Donations or raffle prizes are invited, please contact us by phone or email if you can help to raise monies for this valuable cause.


Free refreshments, we look forward to seeing you there!
