17 August

The good news continues. On Friday 15 August, a very junior member aged 6¾, Sam Kettlewell caught his first ever salmon, a 5½ lb. grilse, on the Till at Fenton. His father, Steve, and head bailliff Dave Cave also managed a couple of sea trout. Congratulations Sam.

The Club is always pleased to encourage young people to take up fishing and join the junior section. It is pleasing to hear that they are catching nice fish. All the rivers have plenty of water and a glance at the fish count page shows that in July more than double the number of fish went through the counter this year compared with last.
