The Company fully embraces the The Environment Agency’s national fishing strategy which identified the untapped potential in bringing new people to the sport, in particular youngsters. The Company is utilising its stores and its internet presence to run a “how to start fishing scheme” offering free taster sessions as an introduction to the sport. Details will be announced soon.
