Fishing in the sea is our oldest pastime or sport; it is mentioned in the Bible and is depicted in cave drawings going back thousands of years when fish were part of the daily diet for many people.
Sea angling is good for your health, it is a sport for all seasons and all age groups; it is enjoyed by children as well as men and women of all ages, the able and disabled. It is a sport that can be relaxed or competitive. It can cost just a few pounds to buy a rod and reel to start, bait can be free if you collect your own, and fishing is free from beaches and rocks.
Join the growing ranks of sea anglers and enjoy the tranquillity of the out door life; get away from the maddening crowds and enjoy the best nature can offer; the sea breaking gently on the shore, the graceful gannets as they dive for mackerel or the dancing terns dipping for small surface fish. It is a sport to enjoy with others, or to fish alone. All this can be enjoyed fishing from the shore or miles offshore from a boat.
Sea fishing is a sport in which you set your own targets; fish for pleasure, fish club or open matches or progress to International status, the choice is yours. Sea fishing is recognised by Sport England.
There is no compulsion to join a club, but it is beneficial, if only to be covered by insurance, and you should be a personal member of the Governing body, the Angling Trust; all the information you need is on their web site. By joining, you can help them protect the seas and the fish from exploitation.
