‘Fishing for Life’ is an organisation which provides fly fishing sessions for people who all have one thing in common – breast cancer. Meetings are held every month at Wimbleball Lake, where the scenery is beautiful all the year round. At these sessions they are 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 and the fundraising done by a very committed group of volunteers. As well as learning to fly fish, knot tying, entomology, fly tying and conservation are all included in the programme and each morning’s session is concluded with a buffet lunch or barbeque.
Fly fishing not only provides gentle relaxing exercise, but in this wonderful atmosphere, refreshes the soul as well.
