Open day at Dorchester & District fishing club hopes to catch them young!

DORCHESTER & District Angling Society juniors hosted an open day at Revels Fishery as part of the Angling Trust’s Get Fishing campaign to introduce young people to the sport and help those with some experience.

Some 18 excited new anglers enjoyed the fishing and the warm summer sunshine having casting lessons, and trying out feeder fishing and float fishing on rod and line and with a whip.

If the fishing was not enough, a free barbecue was thrown in.

DDAS junior secretary Graham Howard said: “At the end there were smiling faces everywhere and lots of exciting fishing stories being told.

“It is hoped this was the first of many such events we will be looking to host in the future.
“These events are not possible without volunteer coaches, so thank you to those that turned out to help and to Jason Fricker at Revels.”
