Colin Scott Demonstration

A massive thank you to the one and only Colin Scott for his demonstrations and presentations this evening at our junior coaching evening.

Not only did the Juniors learn a lot but most of the adults learnt something new as well.. Once again I would like to thank Colin for his time and support to our club and can’t wait for the next session with him 🎣🎣🎣

Spring Into Fishing

As part of our ongoing commitment to encourage more people to try angling and get more people fishing, more often, Ramsbottom Angling Association have joined forces with Bradshaw Hall Fisheries in Bolton on Saturday 20th April 2019 to support the Angling Trust’s initiative Spring Into Fishing.

Never been fishing before? No problem –  tackle, bait, instruction, day fishing licences and info on fishing clubs and places to go are all included free. Or if you’ve tried fishing already then come and learn beginner’s skills from qualified licensed angling coaches. It doesn’t matter what age or ability – everybody’s welcome.

Parents and Grandparents – bring the kids, have a go yourself and discover how fishing is a fun, exciting, cheap and healthy outdoor activity. It’s also a great excuse to enjoy the peace and quiet of nature.

To book your slot simply call or text 07513 289491.
