Anglers start aged 8.8 years

ANGLER’S MAIL can reveal the average age you started fishing – and it was quite young!

Well over 200 of you replied to the question on our ever-growing Facebook page – – and the statistics reveal it was 8.8 years old.

Many of you were well under that age but some older starters did bump up the age with the oldest at 57.

But the 8.8 age figure did not surprise Les Webber who has an MBE for his service for coaching children at his Angling Projects in Berkshire.


Glow forward on rivers

A SCIENTIST behind glow-in-the-dark fish has told Angler’s Mail how he hopes they will help battle pollution.

Dr Charles Tyler worked with the Barbel Study Group in the 1990s researching abnormalities like tumours and eye defects etc on the River Lee, Kennet and Teme.

Now at Exeter University he spoke to the Mail after the shocking glowing fish were seen in the national media.


“400 interested in buying up CEMEX waters”

INTEREST in the sale of CEMEX Angling’s portfolio of venues has surprised fishery sales specialists FennWright.

We broke the news that CEMEX Angling was to sell-off all 18 sites including some of the most historic fisheries in the country.

A price tag for the whole portfolio was suggested to be £37 million but this has never been verified.
