The river Eden at Warwick Hall was the venue for a turnout of eight today to try their hand at grayling fishing, for most of the group it would be their very first time.
All carried their own tackle down to the river along with Tracey and Angela.
The young people from the Wigton Youth Station about to tackle up.
The river was swollen and carrying some debris and colour, not easy conditions, but never impossible.
Hopefully the first of many future fishing trips in the making.
With the mild weather at around 18 oC it did not feel very Autumnal.
Nevertheless all the preparation during those Thursday evening sessions at the Youth Station paid off and grayling were caught with fish to 1lb 8oz being landed on maggot and swim feeder tactics.
One or two nice out of season brown trout were also landed and carefully returned.
