CONGRATULATIONS!

Some exceptional March weather conditions culminated in yet another successful Spring Assessment & Open Day weekend at Cockermouth with AAPGAI.

Amongst the participants attending the open day on Saturday were many of our members presenting workshops or assisting with some 1-2-1 instruction.

Last and by no means least we held our presentation dinner at the Trout Hotel to celebrate those successful candidates who passed assessment this weekend…

Many CONGRATULATIONS to them all on their achievements… an 85% pass rate, the highest ever achieved at any of our AAPGAI assessments, our new members really are setting the highest of standards anywhere within game angling instruction.
