Fishing 4 School Success!

IMG_0648-2Four Malling School students took part today at the Fishing 4 Schools annual Challenge Match. It took place at Hadlow College, Grove Farm, Fisheries. 

The students fished a whip only match where the aim was to bag as many silver fish as possible. The big carp found in the lake could not count, so everyone had to think carefully about their tactics. They fished one hour session in the morning, and the second in the afternoon.

The fishing was tough going and the end results very close, but luckily The Malling School won it in the last few minutes with a cracking 1lb 8oz Perch, caught by Ethan Hope (Year 9).

All the students had a very enjoyable day, and it could not have been possible without the hard work the charity does
