Lymm Angling Club offer a four-session, intensive “Introduction to Angling” course. This guide outlines the areas of coaching that will be provided and the learning objectives for those who attend. Catering for ages 8-16 years.

All sessions are two hours in length. The coaching is fairly intensive and to assist with this goal there will be no more than 1 coach to 4 anglers. Each session builds on the knowledge gained from preceding sessions and in so doing provides a constructive learning experience for all young anglers who attend.

Although the course caters for beginners, anglers who have some fishing experience can attend too. If an angler has some basic angling knowledge, he/she can start at the most appropriate session rather than attending all sessions. Numbers can be limited and preference is given to those who attend previous sessions.
