Great work and fun had by the Northern Ireland Cross Community Anging NICCA who were out fishing and report:
The 7th BAITS Project session took place today at Beechhill Fishery in Newtownards. This week’s participants were from the newly formed Milltown Young Anglers. The enthusiastic beginners found it tough fishing as northern winds and bright sunshine proved tough conditions. Undeterred they didn’t lose concentration and through determination they all caught a mix of Rudd, Roach and Trout.
We would like to thank all our coaches and volunteers who assisted today. This Project is fully funded by Belfast City Council and supported in partnership with DCAL.
Northern Ireland Cross Community Anging
N.I.C.C.A. was formed in May 2011 and incorporates all disciplines of angling including coarse, game, pike and sea fishing. The club has a membership ranging in age from three years old to Senior Citizens and are currently the only fully Charity registered Angling club in Northern Ireland.
Their aim is to create opportunities for young and disabled people – building a brighter future for them, their families and local communities. The club seek to achieve this by delivering fun and interactive activities centred around the sport of angling. They have their own lake in Newtownards which is a mixed fishery. It has private parking and there is kitchen and toilet facilities.
