2021: a pretty good year for fishing despite pandemic
As we enter a new year, 2021 will be remembered more for the Covid pandemic than anything else but it was also a pretty good year for fishing. More people took up our sport and a good number of previously lapsed anglers rediscovered the joys of time spent by the water. This was replicated in rises in both rod licence sales and membership of angling clubs.
In his latest blog, Angling Trust’s Head of Policy Martin Salter reflects on another challenging, but highly successful year of fishing.
