A fantastic day was had by all, with excellent radio coverage provided by Hytera radios at the Learn to Fish Event on the 4th of August, organised by non-profit organisation PCFWW for the fourth year running. The joys of fishing were passed on to the younger generation with the event being held at Press Manor Fishing Lakes in Ashover, Derbyshire.
The day kicked off with a lovely carp catch on the coarse lake
Over 200 children took part with stewards in attendance teaching children how to fish. Please contact PCFWW if you are interested in being a steward next year. Fishing specialists were on hand to provide fishing and cooking demonstrations including Bakewell Fly Fishing, Fly-ology and international angler Bernie Maher.

It takes a full team
It takes a lot of support to run an event like this safely and smoothly. Volunteers from St John Ambulance were in attendance as well as officers from Derbyshire Police Wildlife Crime Unit, the lovely ladies from Tesco who were there providing healthy snack boxes as part of the Bags of Help scheme, there was an excellent fellow navigating cars to the right place on this rural country road all day and of course the lovely organisers from PCFWW.
Exceptional Radio Coverage
Keith Griffiths, the main organiser of the event and active member of PCFWW commented on the “exceptional coverage” of the radios which were being used from the carpark at the entrance right through to the secluded coarse lake. A fair walk, not that anyone could complain on a day full of glorious sunshine.
“Having venue tested the Zycomm digital radios, I was amazed at the distance they operated over. The ease of use and sound clarity was superb, love the feature which informs you of channel selection. PCFWW really appreciate your kindness in loaning us these radios to use at our community event.
The Press Manor Fishing Lakes consist of three lakes: a well stocked 5.5 acre Trout Lake, 3.5 acre Carp Lake, and 3.5 acre mixed fish Coarse Lake.
