SAS Keeping it Clean

Jan 14,2007 SACN

Last year SACN reported on the efforts of a group of anglers in Shoreham, to clean up their local fishing venue with the aim of keeping it neat and tidy

(See: Shoreham Anglers Clean Up )

The latest news is that the group is going from strength to strength, perhaps demonstrating a new direction that other clubs, struggling to maintain their own memberships, should be considering.

As Shoreham Angling Squad are demonstrating, there is a body of anglers out there who want more from a club than simply the chance to enter competitions and win trophies.

Putting something back in and working together with others brings a whole new kind of fun to belonging to a sea fishing club, and provides a rare opportunity to feel good about what you are doing and achieving.

From their website at: www.shorehamangling.co.uk/sas/ 

"We want to have the best possible public image and the leaving behind of rubbish of any kind, especially dangerous fishing line and hooks, is a disgraceful practice that we can educate people against. 

Anglers can and should be in harmony with their environment.

Other plans include a disabled anglers day, a charity “fish-o-thon”, fun fish-in days with expert advice available to novices, competitions and a long term aim to engage with local authority, both port and civic, to explore methods of enhancing the venue to mutual and public benefit".  

(Anyone wanting to support SAS and donate to the charity 'fish-o-thon', even if you can't make the fish-o-thon itself can find details at: http://www.worldseafishing.com/forums/showpost.php?p=460482&postcount=20 )

SACN can only admire the effort of the anglers at Shoreham and their success, and wish them every success in the future.

Now, about your area, and your club ............................. ?  :-)
