Young angler Luke Purcell caught several fish on his first outing on the River Kenn

The River Kenn which runs through Clevedon, continues to fish well with club and visiting anglers enjoying one of the best seasons for years.

Large bream, hybrids, roach and perch have given good sport to both experienced and novice anglers.

Young Luke Purcell from Nailsea had never fished before and was keen to give it a try. His father Mike contacted Clevedon Freshwater Angling Club and a coaching session was arranged with a club official Scott Smallwood. Luke was a natural and landed a few of the river’s big bream, he is hooked now.

The club is holding its annual charity fishing match on September 25 in memory of Dave Fowler senior and in aid of the Pulmonary Fibrosis Trust. Guess the winning weight forms are available in local tackle dealers.
