New fishing platforms installed at the fishery

06/08/2018

We are trying to make fishing accessible for all with changes at the fishery installing fishing platforms which are level, secure and easily accessible with the help of an Angling Trust grant.

Society chairman Steve Foster says: "These platforms are also suitable for use by children and large enough to accommodate a couple of anglers so would be suitable for families and we are very keen to encourage youngsters to enjoy our sport.

"We are holding family fishing events this Friday and Saturday 10th and 11th August where parents can bring their children to have a go at fishing.

"All equipment and bait will be provided and a qualified angling coach will be present along with our own under 15 England international angler Billy Pitman who has been in Italy representing his country."

Special thanks must go to Tony Hemming and Gary Seadon who have installed the new pegs at the fishery.
