Youngsters tried their hand at fishing on Saturday during a taster day organised by the Grantham Angling Association.

The free session, in Grantham’s Queen Elizabeth Park, gave children and adults the opportunity to try different types of fishing, including float fishing, ledgering and pole fishing, with the help of experienced anglers.

Seventeen juniors and an adult went along, said angling association secretary Jeff Mawhood.

He added: “Most of these were in the morning – going by the phone calls and emails I have had the weather put people of in the afternoon, but everybody who tried caught fish.

“A couple of them enjoyed it so much they joined so they can keep fishing.

“All we can hope is that the weather is kinder to us on July 15.”
