Charlton's Pond is ideal for the kids that are local, because a lot of them can come on their bikes or walk. We’re just so chuffed that it’s something for the kids to do and it’s inexpensive. The good thing about it is everybody’s interested, even if they haven’t caught anything. Everyone’s interested in walking around and seeing what everyone else has done. It’s a nice atmosphere. There were two twins that used to fish quite often, and obviously they get to a certain age, and with this being junior, they don’t fish the matches anymore, but it was nice to watch. You could see them growing up.
Fishing doesn't have to be expensive. I think it is helpful to join a club and see what is on offer. It gives you a chance to experience different places, usually at a lower cost than if you organised it yourself. You also get tuition as part of the day if you want it which can be costly if you pay for it yourself. Once you've had a variety of experiences, you can pick what you are interested in and what costs suit you.
