CELEBS LOVING ANGLING GIVES US ALL A BOOST

 

Be sure to get the brilliant new issue of Angler’s Mail – in shops now. The stories Ben comments on here are inside, along with lots more… like possibly the ugliest fish he’s ever seen. With a look only a mother would love it’s worth picking up a copy just to witness this freak of nature.

IT’S great to see ‘celebs’ out there angling such as the two characters in this week’s issue.

There are many fishing celebs that shun being associated with the sport in fear that it may have a negative impact on their status.

I think they couldn’t be further from the mark, as we know how much of a positive impact our sport can have.

This is where angling really lets itself down as we really don’t hammer home this message.

We should be anglers and proud.

 

THE latest cormorant debate between the Institute of Fisheries Management and the Angling Trust once again illustrates how fractious our sport remains.

The press release from the IFM and Royal Society for the Protection of Birds claiming that the number of cormorants is a very strange move indeed.

They are hardly what you would call the perfect bedfellows so maybe there is some credence in what they say?

The one thing it again highlights is that angling is still very divided.

 

THIS week’s What’s On panel lists loads of angling events all taking place on the same day!

I would have thought it prudent to find out what else is happening so that your event doesn’t clash with others.

 

THE judging for this year’s ACE Carp Cup champ is even harder than usual this year. Normally there is a real stand out contender but our shortlist of eight are all very similar in their achievements. Needless to say I’m sure whoever is voted number one are a very worthy winner.

 

 

LIKE OF THE WEEK: The weather. After what has felt like a long winter plus the coldest spring in 50 years a little bit of sunshine has brightened up our days.

 

 

DISLIKE OF THE WEEK: In fighting within angling. United we stand and divided we will fall.
