Bank Holiday at Exe Valley

At last we have been blessed with some summer sunshine. This is the view from our tackle shop and office this afternoon .... not bad is it!!! Best of all though this image proves that fishing really is a family affair, half of the anglers here today are children. The UK angling scene (and the tackle trade) must wake up to the fact that kids need to be encouraged to try fishing and also to lose the "uncool" status it seems lumbered with. The U.S.A, New Zealand and Australia are just a few countries off the top of my head who actively encourage their young population to go fishing. If they can manage it surely we can too? Take you sons, daughters and grandchildren fishing. Get them involved. Make sure they catch some fish. Educate them in the ways of conservation, the underwater world and countryside around them. Can you think of a better way to spend the bank holiday?
