I am very fortunate to get the occasional request to help Borderlines with some of their teaching sessions.
On Tuesday we were on the River Eden with a group of youngsters from Carlisle. This was to be the last of a series of sessions in a project called
'Carlisle Fishing for Knowledge' which was organised and run by Borderlines thanks to funding from the Co-op.
So they were well prepared for their day on the water and it certainly paid dividends, everyone taking part managed at least one Grayling - and some managed three !
With the many projects that they organise and run, Borderlines and others like them do a fantastic job of promoting our sport and everything associated with it, as well as giving young people the opportunity to experience and learn about the countryside.
