YOU'RE NEVER TOO OLD TO LEARN

Improve Your Coarse Fishing (UK) - - Youriycf -

Just read your ar­ti­cle on teach­ing them young and I'm pleased to say that I have done just that. My 11-year-old son has been fish­ing with me for a while now but his 12-year-old cousin has never fished be­fore so I in­vited him on a trip with us a few weeks ago. The weather wasn't the best but que sera, sera Any­way, af­ter a few casts he caught him­self a small perch and didn't stop smil­ing so the rod and reel he was us­ing I let him keep it, now he's ask­ing when we're go­ing next! As soon as pos­si­ble...! Also a work col­league was ask­ing about tak­ing his fiveyear-old so again I've in­vited him along with me to fish a free stretch on our lo­cal River, the Tees. I told him I'll bring a lit­tle 4m pole and a rig with some mag­gots and find him a spot where the perch and roach will bend the tip all day, or for the hour or two he will be with me at least. Hope­fully, these kids will see what I en­joy about fish­ing and, who knows, maybe their par­ents will join in and their friends... I don't mind a few more com­ing along to learn, re­gard­less of age...
