Lynne, Teacher (Shropshire) on the positive impact on student behaviour

Angling helps with behaviour, it certainly reaches students who may be misfits, loners, who don't have lots of friends, and are quiet. Angling gives them somewhere they can achieve, it helps them to fit in but it’s not only for them, it’s also for your well adapted student. It’s such a subtle thing, it’s something you can’t measure, but angling certainly has an impact. Teachers will say that a child will behaved better because he knows he’s going fishing tomorrow, or he comes in talking about his fishing and then he gets on with his work. It does help, but it’s something I can’t show in statistics.
