St Machan’s primary school were paid a special visit by representatives from the Campsie Angling Association in May. During the Meet Your River stage of the project, Danny Connor and Michael Cassidy gave pupils a demonstration of fly-casting, a first-hand insight into why it might be useful to know about the riverflies that inhabit the river.
Thanks go to the Campsie Angling Association for their involvement and support of the project.
After the electro-fishing, fly-casting, and kick-sampling, the pupils took invertebrate samples from the river back to the classroom for closer inspection.
Have a look at some of the photos from the day.
