Our second Academy was facilitated by the Scottish Anglers National Association (SANA) and held at the Sports Scotland National Centre, Inverclyde, near Largs. While the first Academy had been predominately fly anglers, this second had a majority of sea anglers including the coaches for the International Youth Team and the Chairman of the Scottish Federation of Sea Anglers (SFSA), Mike Horn (pictured below having a coarse angling coaching session).
One of the benefits of the Dreamstore Academy approach is the way in which different angling disciplines learn from each other and offer each other support. In addition to SANA booking Largs and the tutor team including an SFSA Dreamstore Academy trained tutor, others on the coaching team included tutor/assessors from the British Disabled Angling Association (BDAA).
One of the most satisfying aspects of the development of the Dreamstore Academy course in Scotland an example of what can be achieved when angling works together for the benefit of everyone.
