Get Fishing is the Angling Trust’s campaign to get more people fishing more often. Get into fishing at hundreds of events for all ages and abilities. They are funded by the Environment Agency from fishing licence income
Beginner angling events - want to get into fishing, get back into angling, find out where to go fishing, accessible venues, who to go fishing with, tackle to use to start fishing and how to go fishing for the first time this summer at events near you
I suppose I’m as guilty as any angling writer of giving the impression that my fishing trips are a more or less constant procession of successful exploits with reel singing action and happy, smiley trophy shots. After all, who wants to read about the blanks?
The reality, of course, is that for every great day on the water there’s disaster and every good day is balanced by a pleasant, but distinctly average, angling experience. So this time I thought I’d tell a couple of tales of long planned trips to exotic locations that didn’t quite go as planned.
