Fishing for Life
Fishing for Life is an organization which provides free fly fishing sessions for people who all have one thing in common – breast cancer 🎣 Meetings are held every month at lakes over the South West, Greater Manchester, Gloucester/Worcester, Dorset and Berkshire where the scenery is beautiful all the year round. At these sessions members are able to learn to fly fish under the supervision of qualified coaches.
The sessions are provided free of charge, thanks to the help of South West Lakes Trust, Bristol Waters, fisheries and grants from local authorities and the Pink Ribbon Foundation. It is supplemented by fundraising from a very committed group of volunteers at Wimbleball, Exmoor the founder group, where the Head office is based.
Fly fishing not only provides gentle relaxing exercise, but in this wonderful atmosphere, "refreshes the soul as well" as one member said.
New friendships are made with like-minded people and it is a time to relax and have some special ME time. Families and partners are welcome to come along and support but the fishing is just for the members. Everyone is welcome to the refreshments at the end of the session.
