Fishy Fun @ the Fair!

The River Nith Fisheries Management team attended the recent Galloway Country Fair at Drumlanrig.  The Board and Trust shared a marquee and displayed many aspects of their work.  Both organisations recognise the importance of engaging with the public and see this event, the local Game Fair, as an opportunity to meet the public and inform them about fisheries management on the Nith.  The Fair was considered a great success, was well attended and we received many positive comments.
