At the AGM of the Loch Lomond Fisheries Trust held on 18 September Mr Eddie Edmonstone, who has been the Trust chairman since 2012, stood down along with all remaining directors.
Mr Charlie Frize, managing director of a large construction company and a keen fisherman, was unanimously elected as the new chairman of the Trust.
I have now been formally contacted by Mr Frize who in his letter states:
‘The Board of the LLFT recognises the crucial role which the Loch Lomond Angling Association plays in the management of the fishery – in particular in baliffing it – and its role in the founding the Trust itself.”
Mr Frize then continues, inviting LLAIA reprentation back on to the Trust board.
This is the end result of the meetings held with our major riparian owners since the LLAIA was removed from the board of the LLFT in May 2017. It once again gives us an equal say on the board and allows both organisations to work together for the benefit of the system.
I would like to wish Mr Frize and the new Loch Lomond Fisheries Trust every success in the future.
