Fishing 'keeps going'
Bookmark and Share
The sport of fishing has not stopped even in the recent freezing weather, it has been noted.

Despite parts of the country falling many degrees below freezing in the last few weeks amid the snow and ice, some ponds have been prevented from freezing over by aerators and ice prevention machines that keep water moving, the Stirling Observer reports.

As a result, those heading out with fishing rods and other angling supplies have been able to keep going, although the paper noted that smaller stretches of water have been frozen over and keeping the large ones ice free may be hard to sustain if the cold snap continues.

Those who do find stretches of water they can fish on even in the current weather may wish to don men's outdoor clothing or women's outdoor clothing to avoid getting too cold themselves.

Figures from the Environment Agency revealed that a record £1.5 million worth of angling licenses were sold last year, suggesting that many are turning to fishing as a pastime in the recession.
