Mr David Charity

It is with great sadness that we report the death of club member Mr David Charity after a long illness. Dave joined the Angling Club in 1973 and was one of its longest serving members. He moved to Pitlochry to fill the post of science teacher at the High school and was always willing to give help, advice and encouragement to junior members of the club. He was also club Auditor for a number of years.
His great love was fly-fishing for trout on the Tummel but he also enjoyed a day on Broom and Bhac. He was great company to fish with and, even when the trout were not co-operating, the time would pass quickly as he recounted tales from his extensive store of anecdotes.

Dave was a great character and truly lived up to his name --- he will be sorely missed. R.H.
