GHOF Shropshire

GHOF Shropshire is our second principle case study site for the young people's section of the research.

Run by Karl Humphries (an advanced professional game angling instructor (AAPGAI), it is one of the few angling intervention programmes to offer fly fishing as part of its engagement process. As a result the GHOF Shropshire project includes many programmes involving environmental education, etymology, fly tying and Catch and Cook sessions. These courses have been successfully run in local schools and we were able to observe multiple sessions, talking to teachers students and school support staff.

GHOF Shropshire also works closely with West Mercia police, involving young people is angling sessions (coarse and game) and river clean ups. Most recently the project has begun to deliver BTEC modules form the Cob House Fishery in Worcestershire.
