How This Girl Can get fishing for life

Jo Stephenson, Hardy Fly Fishing & Angling Trust Ambassador, Pike Guide and BBC Big Fish semi-finalist has told us about her excitement to be involved in This Girl Can…

I’m really pleased to be asked to support this year’s This Girl Can campaign! Fishing in any form can be such a rewarding and active way for women to spend their time. 

Fishing can be as relaxing as sitting by the bank enjoying the water, or as energetic as hiking a mountain to reach a hidden lake…

I’m so excited to see that more women and girls are picking up a rod and finding a new love for nature and the outside world.

By going fishing they’re discovering the excitement of the anticipation and the thrill of the take. They are forming strong friendships and a lifetime of memories!
