Junior and Beginner Section

Some newcomers at Lets fish 26/27th May at Stoke

Following on from a successful couple of days with “Lets Fish” on the canal at Stoke bottom lock on 26th and 27th May the club with support from the CanalsRiverTrust has compiled a list of dates when we can hopefully improve on these starter sessions.

These sessions will be held either on the canal or at the Walgrave Manville farm fishery. The canal fixtures will be held at either Stoke bottom lock or as reserve Blisworth tunnel north portal entrance depending on boat traffic and moorings. These canal sessions will be FOC.  The Walgrave sessions will be held at the Manville farm Fishery and a £5 charge will be applicable for these sessions.

Booking on station with facilities at Stoke open day

All sessions will be run to the Angling Trust guidelines. The evening sessions will be of 2 hour duration and the day sessions will be of 2 and half hour duration. Anybody signing up for four of these sessions will be shown and participate in the various types of inland fishing available and on completion of these sessions will be awarded certificates and with sponsorship from the CanalsRiverTrust  and the NorthamptonNene Angling club will be awarded a “Starter Pack”.

First sessions have been held  with 3 juniors attending and a varied catch was had with a couple of good bream, roach, dace, perch. bleak and a daddy ruffe turning up only disappointment was being plagued by signal crayfish although these fascinated the juniors.

Saturday 8th July

Second set of sessions held and attended by 13 youngsters and 1 mum with good mixed catches coming in morning but sport tailed off in the afternoon session due to hot weather. These longer sessions are helping to increase youngsters knowledge of angling and hopefully they will be able to get out there and show the adults how it is done.

Places still available for next session on saturday July 21st book on through contacts as above or through the CanalRiver Trust website.
