Meet at the Activity and Water Sports Centre, Wimbleball Lake for a 9am start and the course will finish around 4.30pm. Tackle and equipment will be provided but bring your own if you have it. Bring a hat and eye protection (I recommend Polaroid’s), wet weather gear, a pack lunch and plenty to drink (there is a tea room on site), a change of clothes just in case and wellingtons or waders for the bank fishing courses.
