The Nith Young Anglers were fishing for coarse fish at Dunscore Fishery on Tuesday 6th August.
We were using a whips and waggler rods baited with maggots and worms to tempt the fish.
This proved to be highly sucessful with over 150 fish being caught to 9 rods.
There were some lovely fish caught including tench, carp, bream, perch, rudd, roach and some hybrids.
Many thanks to all of the Young Anglers who turned up and braved the rain, to Martin and Paul from Dunscore Fishery, to the angling instructors from Borderlines and to Jim and Davy from Nith DSFB.
We look forward to our next days fishing at the end of August when we will be going salmon fishing.
A great day fishing for the Nith Young Anglers Club at Farthingbank Loch on Drumlanrig Estate and a big thank you to Scott at Buccleuch for allowing us to fish there at such late notice.
Lots of trout were caught but we also set challenges for our Young Anglers to complete in order to achieve their Bronze and Silver certificates.
These included setting up their rods themselves, deciding on the bait/fly to use, and when successfully catching a fish…..
how to play it and land it safely on their own before returning it whilst keeping it in the water as much as possible.
It was lovely to see everyone developing their angling skills. Well done all!
