We all know that fishing is great fun, if you feel the same way as us at Taskers Angling then you are joining the 11% of the rest of the worlds population who like to fish recreationally. However fishing has also been linked to improving peoples mental health, something that we really do believe is the case. 

There has steadily been growing interest when it comes to this area of research and now you can help to contribute towards this! The Great British and Northern Irish Fishing Survey allows you to do this. The survey is part of research being carried out into the physical and mental health and mental health benefits of recreational fishing in the UK and understand how the wellbeing of those who participate in fishing compares to those who do not.

The research is being led by the Anglia Ruskin University and in association with Angling Direct and the Tackling Minds Charity. It is important to note non-anglers are also being encouraged to participate in this research but it is important you live in either England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland. 

We do feel Angling can make a impact on peoples mental health no matter what their age and background is which is why we are delighted to help champion this campaign. If you would like to read more about the mental health benefits of fishing we have a page dedicated to this on our website
