Get Hooked on Fishing at Fish 'O' Mania 2012

Success at Fish 'O'Mania 2012

GHOF Projects from Glasgow, Dumfries & Galloway, Teesside, Bolton, Merseyside, Crewe and Shropshire had a fantastic weekend at Cudmore!

Our Peer Mentors helped many youngsters during our taster sessions on two lakes and had the chance to meet stars from the angling world as well as watch the Fish ‘O’ Mania Final and the Home International Match.

Much to our delight, Shane Atkin, 2012 finalist, 2011 winner and now the Official GHoF Supporter of GHoF Teesside, visited the GHoF marquee before the ‘all in’ was called and we were able to wish him luck for the match!

Sunday saw a very warm welcome being given to our new Trustee, journalist and broadcaster Keith Arthur, and as you can see from the photograph, it was definitely smiles all round!!

We were very pleased that Tommy Pickering, the current Manager of the England Feeder Fishing Team, also called in to give our GHoF Projects encouragement and support. This was very much the theme of the weekend where many visitors to the show came to say ‘hello’ and find out more about the valuable work all our projects do.

Everyone should also be extremely proud of the good manners and politeness displayed throughout the weekend by our Peer Mentors....a real credit to Get Hooked on Fishing!!
