Youngsters: Want to give fishing a go?

DORCHESTER & District Angling Society Juniors are hosting a fishing open day at Revels Fishery & Tackle Shop on Saturday, June 3.

Youngsters who have ever thought about having a go at coarse angling – fishing on lakes, canals and rivers – are welcome to go along to the free-to-enter event.

Experienced coaches will show juniors the basics of fishing equipment, which baits are used and how to care for and look after the fish that are caught.

No previous experience is required and no equipment is needed, just weather-appropriate clothing.

The event runs from 10am to 3pm with a break in the middle for a barbecue/refreshments.

Juniors over the age of 13 will require a one-day rod licence, which the club can obtain if the youngsters don’t have one.

To book a place, or for more information, contact junior secretary Graham Howard at or look for DDAS Juniors on Facebook.

Booking closes on Thursday, June 1, at 9pm.
