Park Junior Day 22 August 2015
A group of local youngsters had a day to remember on the Dee, courtesy of Park Fishing. Proprietor William Foster invited the juniors and their parents/guardians to enjoy a day of casting instruction and fishing on the famous Park beat and served up a delicious lunch for everyone to enjoy. Mr Foster said, “I know how important it is to encourage youngsters to get into fishing and Park is delighted to have played a part in making that happen.”
Head ghillie Keith Cromar made everyone really welcome and got the group organised to set off to different parts of the beat for a cast. Top casting instructor Gary Scott, AAPGAI, donated a day of his time to the youngsters and soon had them roll casting and making double spey casts in the Cellar Pool. Down river, in the Durris Stream, Sean Rennie from Aberdeen was overjoyed when he hooked and landed a 4lb liced grilse. It set the others off and there was a buzz of excitement among the youngsters as they tried to emulate Sean’s catch.
