We were approached by Ben Skelton who runs the excellent Ham and Petersham Youth Club providing kids in the local area with a structure and a place to go. The link to them is here

They run a fishing club and wanted advice from the TAC which we have duly obliged and during the discussions we found the tackle they had was either broken or inadequate. The club has the rights to fish the Thames Young Mariners at Ham along with an abundance of local river

We made contact on their behalf with Les webbers Angling Projects and Les kindly donated some tackle to the youth club.

We were delighted today to hand over the tackle to Ben for his project. In addition we are to run some fishing workshops for the kids to explain tackle set up, baits, techniques etc.

Angling development is something important to us but we have barely scratched the surface of yet, so are very pleased to have been able to assist here.

That's a great gesture, and an excellent example of good will from the T-A-C.
