Meet ‘ALF’

Since the launch of Young Anglers YOUFISH programmes in October 2012 one of our aims was to equip a vehicle with a range of angling equipment and resources to enable the deliver of  a comprehensive, consistent, sustainable and unique angling experience at any location. A development we hoped to achieve in the second phase of our development.

The success of the programmes enabled us to take early delivery of a brand new Vauxhall Vivaro double cab vehicle in April 2013 which not only  meets our requirements but also enables us to travel in comfort with students to any waters we choose. Called ‘ALF’ – Angling Learning Facility we can now truly offer a comprehensive angling experience.

With the addition of a quality commercial portable shelter we can quickly and easily set up a teaching and   learning area. This area can be used for demonstrations and presentations in addition to a work area for students to make angling rigs, research topics, watch videos or work on their portfolios to achieve an Aim Award in Angling. Not forgetting a welcome shelter from some of our typical British weather.
