#ANGLING - Irish Times angling correspondent Derek Evans pays tribute to Des Chew of the Dublin Angling Initiative for his work in bringing "the world of angling to thousands of young people who otherwise would be oblivious of Ireland’s rich angling resource".

It's been a particularly busy 2012 for Chew too, writes Evans, overseeing a series of three-day introductory angling courses that have enrolled more than 300 teenagers from around Dublin to date.

And some 60 of them were expected to test their mettle at the annual DAI trout fishing competition in Aughrim, Co Wicklow at the weekend.

Intro to Fly Fishing for Kids

The Dublin Angling Initiative (DAI) is set to host an introductory course on fly fishing in Dublin next month.
The event at Corkagh Park in Clondalkin on 5 March hopes to be a first step into the art of fly fishing for young people and their parents.
Renowned fly-casting instructor Paddy McDonnell will also be on hand to demonstrate techniques and hopefully inspire children to take up the sport.
Children taking part must be over 12 and under 16. A limited number of places are still available on the course. For details contact Des Chew at 087 674 0214.
Corkagh Park Fishery hopes to follow this event with a series of angling summer camps. For more visit corkaghparkfishery.ie.
