SHOREHAM ANGLING SQUAD
Steve Smith, Grahame Carter and Andy Timms decided
to set up the Shoreham Angling Squad. From pencilled notes of their
first meeting they came up with a set of aims targeted not only
at rectifying the current state of affairs on the arm, but to encourage
the long term angling future of the venue through a policy of sociability
• To promote a cleaner environment in which
everyone can fish
In a matter of only a few months since Steve, Grahame and Andy met, they have discovered that they were not alone in their concerns as the club has flourished to number nearly 80 members.
The cleaning up of the arm, although of prime importance and the most overtly demonstrable, is only the foundation by which the club hope to get more people involved. They want to have the best possible public image and the leaving behind of rubbish of any kind, especially dangerous fishing line and hooks, is a disgraceful practice that they hope to educate people against.
Other plans include a disabled anglers day, a charity
“fish-o-thon”, fun fish-in days with expert advice available
to novices, competitions and a long term aim to engage with local
authority, both port and civic, to explore methods of enhancing
the venue to mutual and public benefit.
