    My mum came fishing with dad and myself occasionally on the Thames, now and then she would have a go and catch fish after fish about one a minute, when she handed the rod back it was back to normal, one an hour. Every time it was the same; used to fiss dad and me off proper.

    I agree! My 4 year old daughter is keen to try fishing, I'll be taking her to a trout lake with my dad Richard in a couple of weeks. I don't know who is more excited!

    That's a really good point. My youngest sees piddling in the bushes as one of the highlights of any trip, but as she gets older i assume that's going to change.

    There are very few ladies on the coarse fishing scene but I do see a fair few when fly fishing . . . .

    My daughter loved to come night fishing with me when she was younger but more for the camp meals and the Smoors than the fishing in all honesty. With all of my children I tried to teach them to enjoy the wilderness and to learn about nature.

    The trick I found was to break the day up into fishing for a couple of hours and then to stop and do something different for a; ottle whole to avoid the boredom.

    My first wife was a very good angler, as her Dad had fished all his life and had taught her, but my next one was Norwegian and she simply couldn't understand why we go to all that trouble just to throw them back . . . . Norwegians fish for the pot, typically . . . . .

    Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers.

    Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher's salary. ~

    There's plenty of room for more female anglers. They're probably better anglers than most men. we've had fishing to our selves far too long.
    Commercial fisheries have everything females could need, that is apart from a make up shelf in tackle shops but if tey asked they would be accommodated.

    Civilized men are more discourteous than savages because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split, as a general thing.

    I have only ever seen 2 ladies having a go and very competent they were too! My wife has no interest at all and even my daughters who between them have bought me a couple of fishing chairs and a bivvy are not inclined to come with me to try them out! Mind you I earn brownie points when I beg them to come and they refuse!

    I even offered to introduce them to Tigger and they were still unimpressed!

    Even though I'm in my 70's I think I'm more modern than most people a fraction of my age who think they are Liberal and modern.

    Firstly, I see absolutely no reason why women fishing should be segregated in matches, its not a physical sport, some would question if it even is a sport or not.

    Secondly, I don't understand why people can not just view people as people rarther than, x sex, y race etc.

    Third, In an age where young people are tucked up inside and are becoming more and more alien to the real world. Why is fishing not encouraged by schools? Come to think of it gardening, hiking too, we wonder why our kids have vitamin deficiencies! Kids nowadays think fish come from morrisons fish counter and vegetables from the EU for gods sake!

    My son and his wife both fish, I encouge my grandkids to give it a go regardless of their gender. Maybe if more people brought their children up as people rarther than stereotyping them maybe fishing would be more diverse?
