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!
