Club president warns of algae bloom

There has been a bit of an algae bloom on the North Pond.
The parks management has cancelled all watersports but angling can continue as we are not an immersion sport.
I ask all anglers to observe basic hand hygiene when fishing to avoid ingesting any water. SEPA are to be carrying out testing today (Wednesday, August 25), and results are due by the weekend.
It should be noted there may be some limited watersports on the Island Pond especially at the weekend.
– Ian McLean, President

Family tribute to much loved club
founder member

Stacks Image 458

When our dear friend, David Leiper, died in February 2020, aged 66, his family was keen his memory should live on at Monikie Angling Club.
Accordingly, they very kindly presented the magnificent bench pictured above, in his name.
David was a founder member of the club, and joined the committee as treasurer in 1984, a position he held until ill health forced his retirement.
He was an enthusiastic and expert angler who loved fly fishing at Monikie and could always be relied upon to “winkle one out”.
Along with his wife Alice he was also an accomplished golfer and after retiring from his job as chief accountant at the Old Course Hotel in St Andrews spent some time as a caddy at Carnoustie.
We are sure the new bench will be well used by anglers and visitors alike and help keep all the memories of David in our minds.
