With most European countries in COVID-19 lockdown, it is more important than ever to take care of people’s mental as well as physical health. For instance, the Angling Trust, EAA British member, has launched a dedicated website to help anglers coping with the current restrictions.
Fishing Buzz is a website full of different kinds of content aimed to keep anglers entertained during the COVID-19 related lock down, until it is possible for anglers to come back to their favourite fishing spot. News, videos, games, tips and bits of advice are published on a daily basis by various contributors. Participatory by nature, Fishing Buzz is also a space where anglers can comment, share their experience and make some suggestions through a dedicated email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The website gives access to a wide range of content about physical and mental wellbeing such as advice from specialists, tips for feasible home workout, fishing related games for kids, informative videos made by anglers and virtual walks in the nature all aimed to help anglers and their families spending their days indoor. Why not try a “home-made carpy gym” as Harry Charrington suggests in this very funny video?
These days can also be the right opportunity to learn new tips, improving your fishing techniques and getting friends into angling. Angling Trust proposes a series of videos titled “Get Fishing Lockdown Series” which will help new anglers to learn how to start fishing as well as more experienced anglers who could get useful advice.
Contents for kids, suggestions to discover new angling related Youtube channels, advice on popular fish species and much more information will make Fishing Buzz a very useful hub for anglers in the United Kingdom and across Europe during the quarantine periods.
