GFT had a great day at the 203rd Wigtown Agricultural Show (no, we have not attended 203 times!). This long standing local show, which GFT have attended each year for nearly 20 years, is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the work of GFT in the heart of Galloway. In addition to displaying the progress of various projects, we had a ‘GUESS THE WEIGHT OF THE WILD SOLWAY SALMON’ competition and a fish tank to show juvenile salmon and trout.
The guess the weight of the salmon competition was won by Gorden McAdam who is pictured receiving his grilse from Jamie. Gorden guessed the correct weight of 4lb 6oz along with four other people –Merrick Anderssen (who has been volunteering with us this summer), Lord Stair, Duncan Vincent from Galloway Angling Centre and Eric McCowan.
The next show is this weekend (Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th) at the Lowther Show by Penrith. GFT’s stand will showcase the work of GFT, but in particular the work on our eastern river, the Border Esk. Come down and see us!
