Event : Keep It Reel, Coarse Fishing Evening

Between the downpours on Thursday 21st June young people from Clitheroe Youth, Blackpool B&GC, Marsh CC & Brunshaw Action Group came to Keep It Reel, Coarse Fishing Evening at Whitmore Fisheries in Kirkham. The evening was led by Pete Riley of Blackpool B&GC and helped by Adam Riley his son, and saw the group introduced to angling followed by a fishing match split between the junior and senior age groups. Once set up, it wasn’t long before the fish were being regularly pulled out following advice and tips from Pete. A mixture of Roach, Perch, Tench, Bream, Hybrids and Carp of varying sizes from tiddlers to 1 ˝ / 2 pounds monsters were landed much to the excitement of everyone. Once in the swing of things the evening continued with a match which inevitabley saw the fish stop biting however the best and largest fish of the night was kept to the very last second, a lovely Mirror Carp of about 1 ˝/ 2 pounds was landed by Jasmine Gwillam of Blackpool B&G Club.


The results of the match are as follows:



Winner:                              Ewan Jackson                    Clitheroe Youth                 17 fish landed

Runner Up:                         Ryan Taylor                       Blackpool B&G                  12 fish landed
