Introduction to Sea Fishing Day
Sunday April 12th 2014

After a request by Bournemouth Borough Council and the Coastal Activity Park manager Dave Collier, a free day's Introduction to Sea Fishing was put together by Neil Wilson, a Level 2 Angling Trust Coach and Wessex Region Committee member, to coincide with the opening weekend of the Coastal Activity Park.

With the help of Mike Judge, a Level 1 Angling Trust Coach and Juniors Representative for Wessex Region Marine, volunteer helpers Rod Giles and Graham Sheppard, a total of 70 first time and previous experience young people (and parents) had the chance to try their hand at Sea Fishing from Boscombe Pier. Some staying the whole day and others just an hour or so.

Blessed with the perfect days weather, plenty of fish were caught and returned including Brill, Flounder, Dab, Plaice, Pollock, Scorpion Fish, Whiting and just the one early Mackerel.

The day was thoroughly enjoyed by not just those taking part, but the hundreds of visitors to the pier for the day.

Dave Collier commented after the event, that it was an emphatic success, being very well received by the public and the wider Council and we look forward to building on this event.

Thanks must go to Tackle 914 of Pokesdown, Bournemouth as the main sponsor and Armfield & Ringwood Sea Fishing Club for making this possible.
