The Association has a growing junior section with young people from the age of 6 years up to 16 years. The person responsible is Chris Gray who can be contacted on 07960 042028. There are a number of planned events where junior members can receive help and advice and fish a friendly match. Lots of prizes for everyone.
The Association often has tackle donated to be used by the junior section. If anyone is worried about what equipment their child might need contact Chris and it is likely that he would be able to kit someone out with the basics.
Juniors up to the age of 12 years fish for free. Between the ages of 12 years and 16 years junior membership costs £10.00 a year. Between the ages of 16 years and 18 years juniors are charged the concessionary fee of £45.00 a year.
The Angling Participation Open Day, run in partnership with the Environment Agency, will be held on the first Saturday of August 2022 ( 6th August ). Wheel Pond will be the focus of activities but parts of Dores, First and Island Ponds will be closed on that day. Please invite your family and friends to this excellent free day, where all can have a go at fishing with a qualified angling coach. All equipment and bait provided.
Angling teach-ins will be held throughout the school summer holidays on an evening to be confirmed. This will begin after the open day. They will take place on Wheel Pond from p.m. onwards. All anglers are welcome, tackle and bait provided.
