Junior Coaching 19th August

A great day yesterday running a junior match and coaching session at Aldercar Lane Fishery on ‘Folly’. Juniors, mums and dads turned out in force for the coaching sessions. Starting off covering the basic equipment and a short practical demonstration they were all quickly into catching fish. Brilliant. At the end of the session they received an Angling Trust ‘Get Fishing’ wrist band and appropriate ‘CAST’ award certificates as well as an introduction to fishing booklet and log book to record their fishing experiences.

The junior open match was won by Tom Clifton with 61lbs 13ozs from peg 22. Ben Wilson recorded his best ever match weight to claim second place with 49lbs 6ozs and Tom Blanchard, who only started fishing this year and only recently started match fishing came third with an impressive 35lbs 6ozs off peg 24. Well done to everyone. Fantastic!
