This Girl Can: Tracy, Sascha and Trinity – these sea fishing girls can catch fish!
Tracy Halls sent us some brilliant This Girl Can pics of her and her daughters in action carp and sea fishing. You can see from the photos that there’s much more to angling than sitting around waiting for a fish!
Tracy also highlights the educational value that fishing offers children and yet again, here’s a testimonial to the fact that fishing is a perfect way for families to enjoy time together in nature…
Me with a good smooth-hound
Sascha with her personal best smooth-hound
Our youngest daughter Trinity sea fishing
Tracy told us “My daughters both enjoy sea fishing with me. It makes for a great family day-out and even if none of us catch anything, spending this time together surrounded by the beauty of the sea is priceless!
All of our fish are caught on a catch and release basis, and it’s great for our children to be able to learn about the various species of fish in the sea.”
