21/3/21 Great to see a Brown tag Anglers Versus the Currane Barless Anglers out this day and I can say without any fear of contradiction it was a no score result. Just for the record their order of merit is as follows, One Barbless Boat, 3 hand me down Tag Boats, 3 Brown tag outright winners. Wind SE then Veered SSW light and overcast.

22/3/21 The Currane anglers be they a privileged Brown Tag merchant or a Barbless Merchant, I can say they were all Salmonless Merchants this day.  Just for the record there were 4 boats out this day. Wind South light and overcast.
