FREE FISHING FOR CHILDREN
Schools can apply for free fishing tuition for children online through the Fishing for Schools initiative for the first time.
Set up by Charles Jardine, the initiative is run by the CA’S charitable arm. Last year, children aged 10-16 from 30 schools were taken fishing and given classroom sessions linked to the curriculum.
“There has been a huge growth in demand for our free Fishing for Schools courses, which is brilliant,” said Jardine. The new application process is “a fair and consistent way of deciding how our resources are used”, he added. Applications for sessions in 2019 close on 9 November.
