5,000 MORE RECRUITS TO OUR GREAT SPORT
UNFORTUNATELY I had to miss two major events this summer where I could have supported both Angling Trust and Get Hooked on Fishing.
The Game Fair at Ragley Hall was an excellent affair and I was really looking forward to working on the stage, interviewing and telling tales, some of which could have well been true.
BBC Countryfile Live at Blenheim, a venue I really like and enjoy, was the other one I couldn’t attend. It seems incredible that the angling participation events there, part of the Family Fishing campaign and including the increasingly famous GHoF Fishing Funfair, achieved the quite remarkable figures of more than 5,000 genuine newcomers to the sport – fact, not pie in the sky!
More kids fishing is great news for angling’s future.
