HUN­DREDS OF FAM­I­LIES EN­JOY FISH­ING FUN AT BIG COUN­TRY­SIDE SHOWS

Angling Times (UK) - - DES TAYLOR: DIARY OF A COUNTRYMAN -

THOU­SANDS of peo­ple had a go at fish­ing – many for the first time – at two of this sum­mer’s big­gest coun­try­side shows.

The Game Fair at Ra­gley Hall in War­wick­shire saw the An­gling Trust and Get Hooked On Fish­ing give 700 peo­ple the chance to try coarse fish­ing or learn to cast a fly.

Then we upped sticks and shifted op­er­a­tions to Blen­heim Palace near Ox­ford, where more than 5,000 peo­ple fished in the es­tate’s spec­tac­u­lar wa­ter­side set­ting.

These two events were an easy and in­ex­pen­sive way for peo­ple to get to­gether as a fam­ily, and spend qual­ity time do­ing some­thing ex­cit­ing while learn­ing great new skills out­doors.

Ours is a sport for all fam­ily mem­bers.
