Update on The Halton Brook Children’s Centre Fishing Club
The Club has held a series of matches over the summer, now possible because of the store of equipment provided by Dreamstore UK.
During one of the matches, 7 year old Ryan Jones landed a 5LB 12oz Bream. Ryan was thrilled with his catch.
Terry Middleton, the Secretary of the Halton Joint Anglers Association who helps with running the club on match days, says this is a wonderful catch for a young boy:
Ryan’s catch represents one of the top three record weights caught by any member of the Halton Joint Angling Club, junior or senior. We are all absolutely delighted for him. He won the monthly ‘Biggest Fish’ and ‘Heaviest Catch’ trophies. Well done Ryan.
