See­ing fish in a nat­u­ral set­ting should get more peo­ple into our sport

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

I’VE al­ways thought that some­thing a bit dif­fer­ent needed to be done to get more peo­ple into fish­ing, and the pro­posed un­der­wa­ter view­ing area on the River Sev­ern is ab­so­lutely spot on.

Take a young­ster to a zoo and they are filled with ex­cite­ment be­cause they get to see an­i­mals of all shapes and sizes in the flesh. The same will be true of this new fa­cil­ity on the Sev­ern, for adults and chil­dren alike.

Giv­ing peo­ple the op­por­tu­nity to see a va­ri­ety of species in their nat­u­ral habi­tat will al­most cer­tainly gen­er­ate an in­ter­est in fish and I’m sure that could eas­ily trans­late into more peo­ple tak­ing up our won­der­ful sport.
