Our job to pro­mote this fan­tas­tic scheme

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

NA­TIONAL Fish­ing Month is a fan­tas­tic idea, but it will only be a suc­cess if ex­ist­ing an­glers get in­volved.

Peo­ple that have never even thought about fish­ing be­fore will be com­pletely un­aware that this event is go­ing on, so it is up to us to pro­mote the free coach­ing and tu­ition ses­sions in our lo­cal area.

A cou­ple of years ago I took a friend along to one of the taster ses­sions and he is now a mad-keen an­gler who has spent thou­sands of pounds on tackle and bait.

If all of us tried our best to get just one ad­di­tional per­son in­volved in an­gling we would soon have thou­sands more peo­ple on the banks of rivers and still­wa­ters. James Pilk­ing­ton, Leather­head
