Sunday 19th August, 2018 (Time: 10 am until 3 pm)
An event for anglers of all abilities who want to try a new technique or improve their existing skill level.
Done some fishing but want to try a new technique or improve your existing skill level at fly, lure or carp fishing? If so these workshops are for you. Expert coaches such as well known local angling guide Andy Buckley, and experienced anglers in fly, lure and carp fishing will be running workshops and masterclasses in these areas to help you learn new techniques or improve your existing ones. The sessions will be fun and sociable as well as instructive and you can come for the duration of the event or just drop in for a while. It is likely there will be fishing related, bankside games and activities as well.
If you can let us know you are coming by emailing your name and DOB to Steve Clamp on firstname.lastname@example.org, or by registering on this National Fishing Month website that would be great. If emailing, please title your it NFM so that it doesn't get lost in the junk mail box.
The event is hosted by Derby Railway Angling Club.

After only approximately 50 metres turn right through a small white access gate down the tarmaced access track and cycle path to the Derby Railway Angling Club access gate.

The Silt Pool will be on your left.
BBQ in the afternoon.

Parking is available on the grass adjacent to the venue.
The venue is adjacent to the fast flowing River Trent so all children must be supervised at all times. The track down to the venue is in general good condition, but care needs to be taken and a 10 mph speed limit adhered to.
