Pictured left: John MacLean from Livingston (fished with the Tap Shop AC and in the boat league), passed away at the weekend. John, who was in his sixties, was a regular at the Lake and had been visiting for twenty years or more. John put up a long fight after his diagnosis. Words are as usual inadequate but hose that knew him will know what I mean when I say that his smile, stories and his sense of humour will be fondly remembered.
