Angling is one of the most popular participation sports in the UK. People of all ages and walks of life enjoy the many different types of fishing available, whether it be in the sea or freshwater and for a meal or just pleasure.
Over the last year fishing has seen a massive uptake in the sport due to the covid pandemic. Not only is it for fun and leisure but also good for mental health. It has become one of the few sports that you were able to enjoy during lockdown and has seen a large number of people both young and old, male and female return to the sport that they love.
At The Thame Country Fair our experts will once again be attending this event to offer you the very best in advice and guidance. Unfortunately, due to covid restrictions this year they will be offering limited one on one tuition and demonstrations will be taking place in the angling arena.
