Commercial fisheries can do a lot more to support good causes
ANGLING is an incredibly generous sport and the amount of money it raises for charity is brilliant.
Rarely a week goes by without a charity match being staged to put a few quid together for good causes, and when you add all those sums of cash together it must amount to millions.
Whoever came up with the idea of giving all the funds raised from day-ticket fees on the Yorkshire Ouse at Overton to the British Heart Foundation should be given a pat on the back.
It got me thinking that maybe commercial fisheries too could give a percentage of their income to charity, or perhaps designate certain days each year when all the fees are handed over.
It would boost charitable funds and also work as a great marketing tool for the venues involved. Carl Brewin, Stokesby
