Half-term fishing fun in Cornwall

Are your children over 12? Do they enjoy being outdoors and active? If so, why not book them in on a day’s fly-fishing for beginners.

The Environment Agency is organising 2 introductory sessions over the half-term holidays.

The first is at Sibleyback Lake near Liskeard on Wednesday 28 May, closely followed by a similar event at Stithians Lake near Redruth on Friday 30 May.

All equipment will be provided free of charge and qualified instructors will be on hand to help budding youngsters develop their fly fishing skills. Any trout caught can be taken home for tea! There is no need to buy a rod licence and both sessions are free.

The events are being run in association with the South West Lakes Trust. Places must be booked in advance. For more information call 01208 265012.

Look out for details for further events for younger children and families held over the summer holidays.
