Angling Trust Wessex Region Marine


Junior, recreational fishermen usually fish either from a boat or from a shoreline or river bank. When fishing from a boat, or fishing vessel, pretty much any fishing technique can be used, from nets to fish traps, but some form of angling is by far the most common. Compared to fishing from the land, fishing from a boat allows more access to different fishing grounds and different species of fish.

Angling is a method of fishing by means of an “angle” (fish hook). The hook is usually attached to a fishing line and the line is often attached to a fishing rod. Fishing rods are usually fitted with a fishing reel that functions as a mechanism for storing, retrieving and paying out the line. The hook itself can be dressed with lures or bait. A bite indicator such as a float is sometimes used.

Sport fishing (angling) is the world’s most participative sport.

Angling Trust Wessex Region are working to help children build their experience and interest in sea fishing.

Add all of the above together and we have a fun and exciting hobby for children to get involved in with fully trained coaches from all over the south we have had fantastic results with many trophies and awards won by our young anglers.
