Principal barriers to angling

Principal barriers to angling

Young people are clear that they would like more opportunities to go fishing. In our survey 95.8% (n=168) said they would like to go fishing more often. However 28.3% disagreed and strongly disagreed with the statement "it is easy for me to go fishing when I want to". To find out what barriers stood in their way we asked 'What stops you going fishing as much as you would want? Pick three'. The most common answer was lack of transport/not being able to get to venues (46.2%).
