Hi All, Just a brief update on Glendas tuition. The morning session went down a treat with approx 20 juniors and beginners attending. We started the session off with a good hour of theory in the adjacent town hall and Glenda and her assistant Dave o brien impressed even the youngest amongst us. After briefing everyone on the safety aspects of being on the river, we soon saw them marching down to the footbridge with rods in hand, life jackets donned and cool safety glasses. What followed from this was a dazzling spectacle of rods flicking, hands moving and a frenzy of activity which had all the hallmarks of enthusiastic youth. To sum it all up, Glenda has really brought Bandon Angling Association to a new level with two new junior girl members joining up.
The advanced session in the afternoon was slack on attendance, but there was at least 2 to 3 members benefitted by having 1 to 1 tuition. Please keep posted as we hope to have an outing on the river so that the youth can put their skills into practice by catching some fish. Regards Fergal
