yeah and do you know what? its beautiful its well kept its like its near the end of September now and the weather is on fleek! on fleek there’s a little cheeky canal up there up there right so we’re going to take a couple of kids up the canal and do a bit of fishing chuck a couple of lures around just see if we can catch maybe a Perch on a lure oh that would be nice lets do it alright then lets go you got another one? yeah

Sean needs the coaching you see i reckon you could do with a bit yourself mate yeah yeah yeah ya breath! I’ve left the line a little bit long ok beacuse the kids tend to wander around and the floats sticking out the water fairly well just to give them a very good visual target there you go right so just hold it still and let the elastic do the work look at you cathing fish out here Sean mate! i tell ya, whats your name sorry mate? Steve Steve? that’s because of Steve’s coaching that is Sean that was nothing to do with you mate right so just try and keep the line tight lift it up slowly a little common lovely jubbly, Steve saving the blank outstanding have you got him yeah?
i got him just about, he’s a lively one he is lively there you go! thank you Steve you’re very welcome i think its important to get the kids away from the homes yeah away from computers and all the rubbish that they play with these days out in the fresh air and er basically learning something new mmm is it something your sons took on as well? er yes! me and my little lad, he’s only 3 and half years old and he enjoys it very much and its nice to give back to the sport really is that what you feel like you’re kinda doing at the moment? yes yeah, trying to introduce new anglers get the younger generation out here because it seems to be dying off a little bit you know but we’ve been doing it here now for 3 years yeah this is our third year i think and we’ve had a few hundred kids come though and we’ve had a lot of them that’s come back again thats awesome go there you go you said that they’re all fry from the specimen pool? yes they are wow so clever that is there’s a bit of a nursery pool over in the corner there ah so we would net the actual lake take out all the small fry and sort out the better fish keep until they grow a little bit bigger tell you what id love to do that yeah?

it is, it is but i mean really the kids come here because they’re first time anglers we’ve already plumbed the depth we’ve set the rigs up we’ve already had half an hour session catching a few fish to make sure the rigs working because basically we need the kids to come down and catch the fish instantly that’s what gives them the enthusiasm to come back we can teach them, you know the different bits and pieces the different techniques and what they need to do at a later stage its getting them here getting them here and getting them catching brilliant well thanks Steve your very welcome that was awesome and enjoy the rest of your day! thank you and you guys cheers thanks Steve thank you there’s some fish up here in the canal monster mate is that a P.B for ya? oh your talking to me sorry err yeah it is yeah erm there you go yeah now i know they’re here lets get the kids up here and see if we can get some some fishing! nice release! cheers bro i’ll give you an 8/10 for that i wont tell the kids about that release naa release it properly ay it arrr awesome, how many fish have you all caught today? ermm I’ve caught 7
