Learn to Fish – Ladies Event (Sat 18th Oct)

14 October 2014
Over the past 3 weeks, Loughs Agency has been running workshops on Saturdays for ladies who are interested in angling. During these sessions participants have gained new skills and knowledge on a casting, releasing, fly tying, etc.

We’ve gathered about 20 evaluations and the remaining 3 weeks will be focusing on the specific areas of interest as well as coaching and hands on practice.

This Saturday (18th) there will be a short presentation on fishery rules/laws, types of fish and where to fish. Bait, knots, techniques will be covered in a short workshop. We will continue to have fly tying, fishing and fly casting (on the lawn) as 45 minute workshops – limiting the time on the pond so that everybody gets a go!
