Kit Dunne of Wicklow Boat Charters was present and accounted for at a recent angling initiative aimed at teaching children how to fish.
Kit was only too willing to bestow any advice he could at the Dublin Angling Initiative Kids Zone held over the weekend.
Recently he has set up a chartered boat business in Wicklow offering people fishing day's out. Last year, a well known UK sea angling journalist Mike Thrussell came to the Wicklow area for a week and had fantastic fishing catching many specimen smoothound, ray and tope. This resulted in articles in the UK press encouraging people to come to Wicklow to fish.
As well as teaching kids to fish, the Dublin Angling Initiative Kids Zone event also featured a quiz, a sealife touch pool and some impressive birds of prey.
