Despite awful weather conditions, the PAA team came up trumps at the Fish O Mania, Cudmore event on the 16th and 17th July, coaching on behalf of National Fishing Month, a total of 105 children and adults wanting to have a go at fishing for the first time or wanting hints and tips on how to become better anglers. Thanks go out to Jimmy Coffey, Peter Fieldhouse, Peter Dykes, Mike Barton and Bruno Broughton for giving up their time to take part and support this event.
PAA support for NFM didn’t stop there though as the following weekend, PAA members Jimmy Coffey (he gets everywhere!), Harvey Jacks, Nick Watkins and Roger Smith joined a team from the ADB to coach over 235 people at the CLA Game Fair at Blenhiem Palace. Again, the weather was unpredictable as were the number of gundogs wanting a bath in the river but the team did well and brought many a smile to potential anglers faces, some of whom were famous!
