Youngster dips fishing rod to beat dad
Bookmark and Share
A young angler has beaten her dad at a trout fishery in Northumberland during a successful week of fishing.

In its regular round-up on fishing at venues around the north-east region, the Newcastle Journal noted that eight-year-old Rosanna Turnbull managed to land two trout at the Caistron Trout Fishery near Rothbury.

Her dad Gordon left the lake empty handed, leaving his daughter with the household bragging rights.

According to the paper, the last week at Caistron has seen a lot of fish in the four to seven lb range being landed, with the average at 4.6 lb.

The largest fish caught in the lake was a 15 lb rainbow trout.

Rosanna Turnbull is not the only youngster to show off her prowess with fishing tackle in the past week.

The youngsters of Enfield won gold for angling last weekend at the London Youth Games, netting a total of 229 lb 4 oz of fish at the Tyler's Common fishery near Romford.

Hillingdon's team came second and Greenwich picked up the bronze.
