Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

AC­CORD­ING to a sur­vey from the An­gling Trust, a third of the UK pop­u­la­tion has tried fish­ing at some point in their lives. That’s a huge num­ber, so why aren’t there more peo­ple get­ting into our sport and go­ing fish­ing more of­ten?

Seem­ingly the big­gest bar­rier is the one that im­pacts on most other sports and ac­tiv­i­ties in the UK – ‘fam­ily com­mit­ments’.

This an­noys me in­tensely – go fish­ing and take the fam­ily with you, it’s that sim­ple!

The best fish­ing ses­sions I have ever had weren’t about pounds and ounces or match wins, they were those spent with my fam­ily.

Most fish­eries these days are geared up with su­perb fa­cil­i­ties, easy-ac­cess lakes full of fish, open week­ends, and shows that of­fer mul­ti­ple ac­tiv­i­ties in­volv­ing a bit of fish­ing too – for all fam­ily mem­bers.

For the sake of the sport we all love so much, and if you do only one thing this year, make sure it’s to take the fam­ily fish­ing.

You’ll find all the info you need to find a venue to go to and the tips to help you catch more fish in the pages of An­gling Times ev­ery week.
