Family Fishing Survival Guide

Angling Is Great for All the Family

Fishing really is a fantastic hobby. Unlike many others, it will last you a lifetime. Be warned, though: once bitten by the angling bug, there is no cure known to man!

PREPARE. Always take plenty of healthy snacks, plus cold drinks in summer and a hot flask in winter. You won’t enjoy your fishing adventure if you are hungry or thirsty.

TIMING.If you are new to fishing, choose a warm sunny day, when you won’t get wet or cold – and the fish are more likely to be biting. Unlike humans, fish eat far less in winter, when their metabolism slows down, so they can be harder to catch until you have more experience.

CHOICES. If you are taking a youngster fishing for the first time, make sure it’s a day they remember for all the right reasons – and that they can’t wait to go again. Not because they were cold and miserable and didn’t catch anything.

PROTECT.Always wear a cap/hat and plenty of sunscreen on hot, sunny days.

WARMTH. When you are ready to venture out in colder weather, always wrap-up well, with lots of layers and waterproofs. Choose footwear that will keep your feet warm and dry, too.

FAMILY. That’s another great thing about fishing. The fish don’t know how good you are, how old you are, or if you’ve got the latest all-singing, all-dancing rod and reel! It doesn’t matter whether you’re a world champion, or a complete novice, follow these tips and your whole family can have a fantastic day on the bank.

ADVICE. Never be afraid to politely ask a more experienced angler, the bailiff/fishery owner or your local tackle dealer for advice. Most anglers are friendly and will be more than happy to help.

READING. Check out the angling magazines out there, too. They're full of advice on where to fish, how to fish and all the latest news and tackle gossip. Weekly publications like Angler's Mail and Angling Times are full of news and events information, whilst monthly publications like Improve Your Coarse Fishing, Total Coarse Fishing and a number of carp titles are more feature-orientated, with tips and tactics from top anglers. Keep your eyes peeled in your newsagents for the latest issues, and remember to check out their subscription deals.
