Monday the 15th started misty and, well, brisk is as good a term as any lest we create any -8 degree flashbacks in our hardy day one survivors! 

Good humour, stoicism, a cheeky nip to start off with, and some hearty soup for lunch were added to the mix, and despite the arctic conditions a memorable day was had by our first guests for the season, most of whom we have welcomed on opening day in the past.  Hopes were raised for the space of a heartbeat as Rory came face to face with an extremely hungry …… grayling under Bridge pool!  A fine mix of old hands and new faces made for a cracking day out, despite the lack of silver.
