Pendle view fisheries Clitheroe - worth a visit and now the school holidays are with us its an ideal venue for the boys and girls. Just remember because many anglers these days are fishing with a pole you don't have to. Try fishing with float tackle and rod and reel. Also don't worry about the high cost of those little grubs, use bread, worms, sweetcorn or meat. We more experienced anglers should also give up some of our time to help the beginners, young or old. Show them how to tie knots, cast a fly, make up float or leger rigs. Give the youngsters a bit of bait. Make sure they have the right size hook and the spool of the reel has enough line. They are the future of this wonderful pastime.
