One of the youngsters who attended the Learn to Fish day.

The club use the lakes at Hampton and 54 children attended with every one of them catching fish.

Most of the children that had never fished before went home very happy after catching up to 80 fish between them.

It turned out to be a very successful day for all concerned and I know organiser Nathan Minter has plans for another open day in the not too distant future.
