Bass Rock Shore Angling League make the first cast in their Summer League at Cockenzie on Wednesday and new members are welcome.

Registration is at the roadside from 6pm to 6.30pm and fishing is from 7pm to 10pm.

James Ogilvie, the club secretary, said that the walkway at the back of the old power station is the designated fishing area and it will be pegged.

It is a catch, measure and release match and the size limit is 15cm with the adjacent angler signing your sheet.

The club held their annual meeting in North Berwick and Alan Brown (West Barns) remains chairman with Ogilvie (Haddington) still secretary. Barry McEwan (Port Seton) remains treasurer with Chris Empson (Dunbar) taking over as match secretary. 

Ogilvie added: “Membership fees are due and they are £20 and there will be ten legs in the summer and winter leagues.”
