A few photographs from days gone by, kindly sent in by Colin McDonald (snr)
These three pictures show in 2005 a work party on Loch Riddon shore
clearing an area free from seaweed so that it would be suitable for
netting and in 2006 Archie Young demonstrating fly tying at the
Glendaruel open day to show what the angling club and the Ruel Board
were doing for the benefit of the River Ruel.
