October 2017 GOBLET WEEKEND (Trout):
The Tuross Head Fishing Club Goblet Weekend "Measure In" and BBQ was held on Sunday 22nd October. As we had daylight saving this month, the "Measure In" time reverted back to Summer time (4pm). Although all fish were entered by photo, you are still able to bring your fish along to be measured in.
There were 16 anglers out on the water with 6 Ladies, 10 Men (there were no Juniors) who entered 37 fish into the competition. Unfortunately, none of them were Trout (Goblet fish), which is a shame as Trout served cold is delicious and was a favorite of Edward VII; he use to hold up the theatre intermission by an hour, in order to indulge in his favorite cold meal, that was brought along to the theatre with him in picnic baskets.
