Marc Bale the Sales Director at Far Bank Enterprises (Sage/Rio) had a hard time choosing between the three finalists.
His final choice is a great one, so put your hand together for aenoon who submitted this hilarious story:
"Nith, nice height, salmon moving through.
Fishing Bridge Pool , to the admiration of a Bus load of tourists.
Line tightens, into a fish to the delight of my audience.
Backing out of water, suddenly i am upside down, immersed!!
I had backed into large boulder, it got me squarely behind kneecaps, causing my early bath!!
Held rod high, stood up, see cap floating away!, fish still on. Minutes later grass grilse of 7lbs. Release fish, head for home soaked, to rapturous applause!.
Later, change of clothes, same pool, no bus, still a few tourists about.
Line tightens, bigger fish this time, decide to get out quick, SPLASH, AM IN AGAIN!! same rock, same result!!
Land fish, twelve pounds, release, tourists applause, off home again!
Later, having quiet beer in hotel, get tap on shoulder, Tourist giving me my cap back!, asks me what time i was performing tomorrow!!"
