Greystoke School at Whins Pond.

With the weather a little more like summer today, it was the field trip for Greystoke school to Whins pond near langwathby. There were twenty six pupils for the first session who only managed to land one fish despite the numbers fishing, it was not for lack of trying though. It was left up to the younger ones in the afternoon to show how it should be done.00226 pupils for the morning session all keen and raring to go.

0039 younger pupils for the afternoon session, a little more laid back and just oozing confidence.
