We were out with the Nith Young Anglers Club on Saturday 13th May at Dunscore Worms Coarse Fishery.
Chris showing the young anglers the ropes.
The young anglers were using whips with maggots, sweetcorn and worms. Although the day was with wind and heavy drizzle, it did not deter the young anglers enthusiasm. The parents also got involved in the fishing!
The fish certainly seemed to like what they were offering as they had over 30 fish for the day including tench, roach, rudd and perch.
Martin Phipps, owner of the fishery, kindly donated a tub of worms and sweetcorn to each child and three rods as prizes for the largest fish caught.
They were caught by Edward Colvin, the most fish caught which went to Kieran Carter and the most persevering angler which went to Fergus Clanachan.
Well done to everyone and a huge thanks to Martin for letting us to fish there free of charge, providing the prizes and Paul for all the advice.
It is just a joy to see the smiles on the faces catching their first fish!
