February 2018 - Ice Breaker for Coach Paul!


 A bitterly cold start for our students this morning, -3 air temperature and a firm lid of ice on the lake.

December 2017 - 2 more students through Level 1 CAST

Having had a few Stillwater sessions with them we decided to put their skills to the test on the River. We decided to take a roving approach as with the cold air temps it’s a good way to keep warm as well. They covered 2 miles of River and managed to catch good numbers of Roach and Perch. Look forward...

This was only the second time that this fish has been banked so a great way to finish off his trip.

 With the summer coaching season over, it was time for a weekend Coaches Social. Paul Forman, Tony Forman and David Brown were joined by Pete Cardell as we descended on a private lake which we had been fortunate enough to gain access to for the event. It was an overcast start for us but at least that kept the temperatures up which were due to plummet the following day. We saw no action in the daylight hours...
