Pupils from Cockermouth School have been learning about angling at St Petersburgh Fishery near Beckermet.

In a joint session involving local angling clubs and the Environment Agency's Fisheries Officer, they learned about the sport, and how to maintain biodiversity.

There was clearly some talent on show, as one youngster managed to land a Rainbow Trout.
