Keith Johnson, disabled angler, taking a moment on the lakes during his father’s memorial trophy competition. Keith was giving his daughter, Abbey, her first ever casting lessons, ten minutes later and what does she go and do – lands an impressive 2.5lb rainbow. Keith, like his father before him, is an accomplished angler so we guess it must run in the family. Well done Abbey!
