Youngsters ? Youngsters ? I’m 53 and they call me ‘ young un ‘ in our club. No mate. We don’t have any young anglers. Our club will drop off a cliff one day. We actually built a pond for the kids to fish but, no kids ever turned up so now it’s open to anyone to fish. Nice little pond as well. Good pond to get out of the wind.

Oooh - where are you Mick?

The issue we have is loads of kids wanting to fish and nowhere for them to go as they are priced out & everywhere is oversubscribed with waiting lists.

Opposite the free council lake I fish is a £600 a year syndicate water who also have all the other lakes nearby costing £150- £450 per year and the club on the other side of town has a 5 year waiting list :rolleyes:

I am willing to move mate honest

😳. Wow ! £600 a year ? That must be a record. Poor kids. Up here in Yorkshire we think £5 for a day ticket is steep ...... Don’t we Dave ? 🤣🤣🤣

You are not the only ones, I was used to Welsh prices of £30 a year club membership and 20 waters on the ticket :rolleyes:

Looking at properties in Yorkshire as we speak (y)

I’ll reserve you a peg ya nutcase. 🤣🤣. Hey, listen here you young man. You keep yourself to yourself. Hull is still in a bad place with this damn virus. You keep you and your family safe. Do you hear ? When all this is over we’ll have a session on the river Hull or Ancholme. Yeah ? 👍

It’s a shame and I don’t know what the answer to it is. Young lads and lasses don’t seem to be interested at all around here. You hardly ever see anyone under say 40 fishing. I’m sure they’ll be a few on commercials but, hardly any on our natural venues. 😩😩

Our club has done great things with kids , we're extremely lucky with a great coaching team .
But yes it is rare , it's a job to get my 14 yr old out of her bedroom , let alone outdoors .......
