Eden Lacy was also the venue for Penrith Angling Association’s junior anglers day on Saturday with 24 young anglers aged 7 to 18; the majority new to the sport keen to improve their skills. They were looked after on the day by PAA members and instructors from Borderlines. Following introductions and a safety talk youngsters were split into four groups and rotated around four different activities during the day.
These included entomology, knots and leaders, casting and casting competition and fishing on the river. Paddy Davis aged 12 won the casting competition; his prize a half day session with Eden Angler Geoff Johnston. Second, third and fourth places all winning £20 vouchers were Luka Labram aged 9, Watson Byas aged 12 and Olivia Errington aged 11. Congratulations to Victor Gubbins at Eden Lacy and to Penrith AA for organising the day.
