Regular trout anglers Max Vallance (13) and his dad booked their first salmon experience and casting lesson in the double handed rod with AAPGAI Instructor Brian Towers at Bolton Castle on the River Ure last month.
After 30 minutes of learning the circle cast, Brian felt confident that Max (13) was covering the pools successfully and changed his piece of wool for a yellow Ally Shrimp.
Within an hour of picking up a double handed rod, Max was into his first fish in the Froddle Dub pool, a 15lb hen fish which was returned. He hooked another one later in the day.
Well done Max from the everyone at FishPal.
Max and his dad fished with Brian Towers at The Bolton Castle Estate near Leyburn,North yorkshire. For more information and to book a lesson please contact Brian Towers
