Scouts Go Night Fishing

Our Scouts went on an adventure last Saturday 9th September hiking six miles to a lake in Wokingham to go night fishing. On route they encountered thunder storms however this did not dampen their enthusiasm as they soon started to catch 10lb Carp. The Scouts literally lived upto the night fishing experience with the last one retiring to their camp bed at 2am only to be woken by their Leaders 5.30 hours later to start packing and striking camp followed by a hearty cooked breakfast before hiking back to the Scout Hut.

The event would not have been possible without the support and permission from Crowthorne Fishing and our three fishing volunteers Jason, Matt and Mick. One parent commented “he had a brilliant time thank you all” and the Scouts wish to say thanks to everyone for giving them this experience and providing them with the opportunity to earn their Angling Activity Badge.
