🎥 NEW VIDEO: Phil Spinks from Angling Direct supports Spring into Fishing

Spring into Fishing from the Angling Trust is the perfect way to discover the wonderful world of angling.

Phil Spinks from Angling Direct has lent his support to Spring into Fishing and talks about his life of fishing in Episode 12 of the Get Fishing Podcast.

Everybody is welcome to come and try fishing during Spring into Fishing – whatever your age, ability or experience level and fishing offers the opportunity to escape the demands of a busy school,  work and home life by surrounding yourself in nature and wildlife away from a world of technology. It provides an opportunity for our minds to rest and reset and can be a meditative pastime that often happens in places where the wonders of nature are very evident. Going fishing is a perfect activity to incorporate in mental health and wellbeing support activity for kids and adults alike.
