Spring Into Fishing – Open Day

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 July 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.

Advanced Group Receive Worm & Caster Training

Ramsbottom Juniors Advanced Group took to Bradshaw Hall Fisheries tonight on lake 9.
The juniors had their pens and paper at the ready to take notes on WORM and CASTER fishing methods which were presented by two fantastic anglers namely Dave Pimlott and Daz Shaw.

 cutting worms

All the juniors asked Dave and Daz lots of questions about worms and casters. They were all shown about how to prepair the bait, chop and hook the worms, how much to pot in and how to build your peg up.This is such a wonderful experience for the juniors to have and to learn so much in one night. Even the adults who attended learnt a few skills tonight.

rory

A massive thanks to Dave and Daz for the time they spent with the juniors. Hopefully they can put into practice what they have learnt tonight.

Junior Coaching Sessions Kick Off in Style

Our Junior coaching sessions started tonight and we had a great start to the season.

We’ve had numerous children on the banks at the lido who have never fished before, which is great news. They’ve all had a bit of fun and went away with smiles on their faces.

The juniors that have attended ranged from 6 years old to 15 years old. As you can see we cater for all ages.

If you would like to come down next Thursday between 5:30 – 7:30 pm then please give Allan a call on 07956 493828 and book your place.
