Health Benefits - Inland Fishing

Physical Health

  • The level of physical exercise will vary depending on where you choose to fish.

Mental Health

  • Getting away from it all in the fresh air can be a great way to unwind and de-stress.
  • Please tidy up your tackle after you have finished so you know it will not be causing any harm to others or wildlife.

Rehab and Recovery

  • Going fishing can be a great way to help you get back to you ‘old self’ and be part of a wider recovery programme.


  • You can fish alone or as part of a group. Meet up with other anglers to share stories of fish and other monsters from the deep.

Weight Management

  • Any walking to reach your casting spot is going to be good for you.
