LAMDAA hold Angling “taster” sessions for Camphill Community, Clanabogan
Loughmacrory & Murrins District Angling Association (LAMDAA) have been holding Angling “taster” sessions recently for local disabled residents group Camphill Community Clanabogan.
Following discussions with staff and management at Camphill, it was agreed that LAMDAA would facilitate residents with short fishing trips out on the Lough to bring pleasure to the residents and the possibility of some freshly landed rainbow trout for the dinner table. The club volunteers have attended relevant courses to work with Vulnerable adults, have had access NI clearance and completed First Aid courses to enable the team to facilitate any group event.
The sessions at the Lough usually last around four hours and have been a terrific success, witnessing an impressive uptake from the community. Indeed many of the residents at Camphill have decided to become members of LAMDAA for 2015 and intend to make regular trips to our fishery. On all of the five trips this year, trout have been landed in good numbers and have provided a great boost within the community
The number of participants vary from 5 to 10 plus carers and, coupled with LAMDAA committee members, this means our six Sheelin boats are often fully loaded.
Loughmacrory Angling Club have extended an invitation to any group out there who would like to try out the lake in Loughmacrory and the excellent facilities on offer.
“We will have five fully qualified coaches within our voluntary staff and we are keen to put all the new qualifications to good use. Groups of young people, older people, families and groups of females are most welcome and costs are always kept to the absolute minimum.” added Mark Tierney, LAMDAA.
The club has a stock of rods and reels, buoyancy jackets and safety wear for anyone wanting to try the Lough, so if anyone has a group who would like to avail of the lake and the facilities, email in the first instance to: firstname.lastname@example.org
