Fishing makes a splash at Countryfile event

Almost 1,000 newcomers took up free fishing sessions at the recent Countryfile Live show at Blenheim Palace, held over four days early this August.

Organised by Get Hooked on Fishing, each of the four day’s places were fully booked before midday. Volunteers helped participants to understand the basics of fishing and provided information on where to find family-friendly venues and affordable equipment, and during the simple lessons conducted at the waterside resulted in hundreds of perch and roach being caught.

A ‘Fishing Funfair’ decorated with graffiti-style fish-artwork by Dusto, and  angling-themed games also helped attract many families to the area.

During the show, Countryfile presenters Anita Rani, Carol Kirkwood, Helen Skelton and Sean Fletcher all took time out to have a go with a fishing rod.

A feature on fishing will appear on the Countryfile programme which will be airing on the BBC on the Sunday night slot on August 19, later this month.
