PERSONALLY I AM SURE IT COULD NOT HAVE BEEN WORSE;...

Personally I am sure it could not have been worse; and the chairman is going to find that he made a very poor catch indeed.

And, it is too late to throw it back now The trouble is that I have no idea what to say.

I could say that I hope you will all have great success with your angling and land many large fish; but if I did I should not be telling the truth. Who ever heard of an angler hoping that all the big fish nibbled his rivals' baits? Then again, I could tell you a tall story-but you wouldn't believe it. So I am going to tell you instead a very simple tale which you will have no difficulty in swallowing.

(Here follow with a very tall tale). Anglers have a reputation for jollity.

There are pubs scattered all over the country called 'The Jolly Angler'. You have never seen an inn called 'The Gloomy Angler'. Yet I doubt if we look very jolly types when we are angling. The explanation, I think, must be that after long periods of enforced silence and patience, we become jolly by way of reaction when we go and slake our thirst. It is fit and proper that we are meeting now in an inn, and I think you have had enough enforced silence and patience while I have been on my feet.

So, here's to jollity and-Success to Angling THE ROWING CLUB. Ladies and gentlemen, Before I ask you to drink to the success of the Club, I must beg you to approve an expression of thanks to two persons. One is our secretary, who no only organised everything with great success throughout the season, but who also arranged this excellent dinner we have just had. The other person to whom we are indebted is the Clerk of the Weather, who gave us some bad breaks at times, but smiled at us in the end.

I am not going to repeat the results of the various events in which we have competed, because you know them already. We have by no means disgraced ourselves, and I am sure that our standard will be at least as high next year.

The object of rowing is, of course, to win the race. But it is the race rather than the victory that counts most, and collecting trophies has its limitations as a pastime. We believe that rowing is a grand sport.
