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.

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.


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.

Springwood Work Party – A Job Well Done!!

Some hard working lads shifted tons of stone to improve the dam path on our Springwood water today. Big thanks from Allan and Neil, we couldn’t run the club without you. A warm welcome to Dan, new member on his first working party and a real bonus for us. Thanks again and if nothing else pop down for a cuppa on Thursday nights when the junior coaching starts.
