Youngesters Get Hooked on Lure Fishing

Angling Trust coaches were on hand at Suffolk’s Needham Lake recently to support a junior lure fishing day.

The event was the brainchild of Pike Anglers’ Club liaison officer, Jason Skilton, Gipping Valley AC and Suffolk County AAA coach, Mark Brewster and Ron Dalton of the Lure Anglers’ Society.

Over three months’ planning and preparation saw more than twenty youngsters attend and the day showcased a particularly active and colourful side of our sport.

England lure squad members, Gary and Sam Edmonds were also part of the large team that provided tuition and advice to participants.  They also gave instruction on how to handle, safely unhook and return the pike caught. Whilst fishing was difficult in the bright conditions, modest sized specimens were banked and the coaches were able to emphasize and reiterate the conservation aspect of pike and predator fishing.

Local youngsters Aston Lander and Max Rushbrook took home the main prizes for their catches and everyone left with a goody bag filled with pike and lure fishing magazines and DVDs. Afterwards, Jason and Mark thanked everyone involved, the event’s sponsors and GVAC and Mid Suffolk District Council for use of Needham Lake.

Sponsors where LAS, PAC, Savagear, MH Custom Lure and Pike & Predator magazine

We also had tackle donated by Pikers Pits members, PAC and LAS members too.
