Following up on a number of very successful Fisheries Awareness Week events in Carrickmacross, the Irish Angling Development Alliance (IADA) held a practice event on Saturday 26th May at Lisanisk Lake (Brother’s Lake) in Carrickmacross. At this event, 10 young anglers between the ages of 12 and 15 took part in a 4 hour training session under the guidance of IADA coaches Geoff Quinn and Peter Walsh and arranged by IADA.
The Fisheries Awareness Week prizes sponsored by IFI have been allocated and the presentation will take place on the next session at this lake over the next two weeks.
During the practice session on Saturday, the kit/tackle of most present was examined and upgraded with an undertaking being given for a return session in two weeks time.
IADA propose to continue investing time in this type of training session on a weekly or bi-weekly basis possibly culminating in the running of a few evening junior competitions before Summers end.
