SOUTH Cerney Angling Club hopes to attract more people to their sport with free taster days next month.

As part of National Fishing Month, the club, in association with the Angling Development Board, will be running free angling taster days on August 7 and 14, under the guidance of coaches.

“The idea is to encourage every family member to have a go at fishing whatever the age gender or disability, or whichever cultural or social background they may be from,” said Craig Hunt.

The sessions are free, and last for 30 minutes, with fishing tackle, bait, and licences provided. Both days take place at SCAC’s Gillman’s Lake, Wickwater Lane, South Cerney, from 10am to 4pm. Book in advance by calling Craig Hunt on 07989 973217.
