Reading quotes from Ambassadors for the Angling Trust the other day I was struck by this nice form of words from bestselling fishing writer Luke Jennings. So here are those words (below). Keep safe, adventurers, we’ve got to hang on (you know, Keep Calm And Carry On) for a bit longer yet.
In a world of X-Factor moments and instant, mouse-click gratification, angling offers the long game. It stills the mind and awakens the instinct. It teaches you that, in the end, there’s no winning and no losing, just the place and the moment and the doing of the thing. It is, in the very best sense, an education.Luke Jennings author of Blood Knots (Atlantic Books).
