First CRIMP workshop a success

The very first CRIMP workshop was held on Sunday 24th March at Strathclyde Country Park. All twelve workshop spaces were filled; three angling clubs were represented, with members of Lamington and District Angling Improvement Association (2 attendees), UCAPA Ltd (9 attendees) and Caurnie Angling Club (1 attendee) in attendance. The workshop, delivered by Lesley Gregg (Clyde River Foundation), Caroline McGillivray (Clyde River Foundation) and Louis Kitchen (Riverfly Partnership), covered volunteer health and safety, training in riverfly monitoring technique and riverfly identification. The sampling site selected for training was just downstream of the Avon’s confluence with the Clyde. Each club will have a follow-up session to the workshop shortly in which volunteers will be shown their sampling sites, receive their sampling kits (one per pair) and practice their sampling technique under the supervision of CRF staff.
