Special chub on Amelie’s first trip to the river
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
