Spe­cial chub on Amelie’s first trip to the river

Angling Times (UK) - - TACKLE NEWS -

I’D NEVER fished in my life, but my 10-year-old daugh­ter Amelie had been ask­ing me to take her for some time and even­tu­ally I gave in to her re­quests.

After a chance meet­ing with Richard Cur­tis, sec­re­tary of Warmin­ster Dis­trict An­gling Club, I took Amelie to a lo­cal stretch of river.

Richard showed her the ba­sics and us­ing a £10 Aldi rod and reel my daugher got a real re­sult – a crack­ing chub that an aw­ful lot of an­glers would be proud of, I am told.

This was a to­tally solo ef­fort on Amelie’s part. All I did was hold the rod while she got her land­ing net.

Need­less to say we’re to­tally hooked on fish­ing now and can’t wait to go again – what a fan­tas­tic sport this is! Mark Pyles, email
