MFS - Glebe Pairs, 7th June 2014

The friday night at the Longshoot was a long night!  Even more people looking quite tired at breakfast the next day. Another big breakfast was required and it was off to the Glebe for the final day of the pairs. Heading back to the fishery and my car now full of groundbait would have another small disaster...

This wasn't the worst of the mess! Of course my groundbait incident was the source of much amusement to the lads!  It's Audi's new grounndbait interior, Krill special! There were many people late for the draw that day, again I'll mention no names.... you know who you are... The Draw Today

The next morning arrived and there were a couple of people still in their beds, mentioning no names eh Pete ;-)  A Longshoot breakfast, copious amounts of toast and coffee and off to the fishery. It was great to
