Paul Mcloughlin, Irish Angling Development Alliance, has all the news from their latest angler development programme…

Development of anglers both Junior and Senior has always been at the heart of the Naas Club. We have seen many new anglers join us and are now competent anglers. Many people returning to fishing are now fishing the match scenes in Ireland with a few pointers in the right direction. We are proud to have introduced many new anglers to our sport and it’s great to see them progressing year after year.


Starting on Thursday 9th of July for 6 weeks we will be having our club coaching sessions. 6.30 till dusk

These will be held on various venues to suit the type of fishing being demonstrated on that evening. Coaching will be done by Peter Walsh ( level 2 first for sport coach) On each evening Peter will be appointing an assistant who is prolific in that field of angling. Our level 1 coaches will also be there depending on availability.

2 weeks on feeder fishing. all aspects from casting to rigs to set up etc etc and anything anyone requires help on.

1 week on canal fishing . Including a tutorial on hemp fishing. hemp can be a deadly summer bait on clear canals which we have plenty of around here.

1 week on pole fishing on open waters. rigs, methods, set up etc.

2 weeks are currently left open to let anglers decide what they require help on. we will arrange these as we go.

All levels of anglers welcome including absolute beginners.
Juniors and Seniors welcome. All equipment available to beginners and juniors if required. NEW MEMBERS ALWAYS WELCOME.

Juniors FREE. Adults optional donation (5er suggested) A donation box will be available at the venue to cover travel costs of the coach.

Week 1 Thursday 9th July 6.30 Blessington Lakes.
