On Saturday, August 9th, 2014 Leamington Angling Association will be hosting a junior masterclass event at Jubilee Pools in Ryton-on-Dunsmore, near Coventry.
It will be an easy-going, instructional event aimed at juniors up to 18 to encourage and help all skill levels – whether you’re looking to learn, polish or hone your skills, ranging from basic whip fishing to advanced rig mechanics and ‘big-fish rigs’, the aim is to cover all aspects, including fish and bank safety.
There will be experts on hand, from various tackle companies such as Gardner, Mainline Korda and Dynamite Baits to name a few, all to help create a real-time classroom to teach different disciplines around the venue. Hopefully, there will even be the chance to land a few fish, providing the fish gods are smiling.
A raffle on the day will have some fantastic prizes on offer so don’t forget to bring your pocket money – it’s not every day you have the chance to win such great prizes for just a few pounds.
The event will start at 10am and will cost just £5 per junior, which will include a sausage or burger from the barbecue. All juniors will require a non-paying accompanying adult on the day. All adults and spectators can also buy raffle tickets and food/refreshments.
All proceeds from the event will go towards the Fish With The Stars Motor Neurone Disease Association appeal and also Anglers Against Cancer.
At the end of the day, a certificate and a 10 per cent discount voucher for Fishing Tackle from three local tackle shops among other prizes, will be awarded to each junior.
Bookings will be on a first-come first-served basis. Please contact Ros Hubbard on 02476 307898.
