One of the beauties of angling is I can decide I am going fishing now, without having to consult other members of a team, or a club. So in fact, if you want to get away from it all angling is good for that. However, I am a member of a few clubs, and there's a chance to get on a few committees. There's all kinds of opportunities for the social side of things. And of course when you are there, and there are other anglers, you tend to go around and have a chat.
Not everyone likes football. Fishing's relaxing and it’s uncompetitive. A lot of kids don’t like the idea of playing football, because they’re little and they get kicked off by the big ones. They’re not aggressive, so why on earth do they want to go and play rugby? With fishing it’s just nice, there’s no stress. You can go fishing by yourself or you can go fishing with all your mates, it is a social sport.
