Fishy tales from Lechlade

A dozen workmates from AMAD enjoyed a day’s fly fishing in recognition for their efforts after a successful year for the company.

Nick Crowther showed the way by landing nine trout at the Lechlade Fishers in Gloucestershire. Lee Daley landed the largest total of trout – 45Ib 4 oz – but the largest single catch was reeled in by Gavin Gosling. Gavin landed a 15Ib 4oz brown trout. Gavin, from Eversham, said: ‘It was a great day out and I was really surprised to land the biggest fish as I’m not that experienced at fishing.’

Sites’ manager Nick, said: ‘Everyone’s worked hard over the last and it was good to have a day out where we could relax away from the sites. ‘I landed a good load and brought them home for my tea and had them smoked. They were delicious.’

Andy Miles who took a lakeside peg, said: ‘It was really nice to have a day out with team. The last 12 months have been hard work and it was good to show their work is really appreciated.’
