Talking of photos if you have been reading the No Spin No Fly’s Zone you would have seen that the Donal O’Neil fishing party and fishing out of had a great weekend of fishing and here are their photos and their report on their Fishing and their stay at and of course their Gillie’s. Donal asked me to add a bit of magic to his report, well Donal the only bit of magic I can add to your first class report and photos is by spelling your Surname correctly as you can see in my Note I failed miserably in my duties and on that note its over to you on the No Spin No Fly’s just Facts zone so take it away and I quote, Hi  Vincent,
