Fishing for Schools comes to Cambridgeshire

After a number of years absence we are delighted to report, that we are once again, operating in Cambridgeshire.

Richard Winser and his team are leading the way in the county and enthralling students from Riverside Meadows, St Neots, who have been taking part in a course of angling related activities. Last week, as part of their Fishing for Schools programme, they delved into the fascinating world of tying their own fishing flies based on bugs, observed in their own school pond.

Riverside is a one of our new schools for 2022 and we are delighted to announce, funded with the support of Cambridgeshire Community Foundation’s Outlook Fund. We are so grateful for their support and we know that the impact on the young people and their outlook on the countryside, will be considerable.

Session 1 consisted of three tutorials covering a range of topics including the different branches of fishing, species of fish/fish fact file, bait and artificial ties. This will be followed up after the second session, with two days fishing when they can translate all of the skills learnt in their class room.

Well done to the Riverside students for their outstanding work. Here are some great images captured of the day.

This group of young people absolutely epitomises our mantra: Everybody learns differently.
