Please e-mail us with any comments, reports on broken links, suggestions or questions

We have included links to many other websites.  We shall eventually get round to informing all of these about our links, but if we haven't yet been in touch and you would prefer us to remove the link to your site, then please let us know.

On the assumption that really serious fishermen will already know where to look for information, we have listed only a few modestly priced fishing opportunities in addition to those already mentioned in the section on Adventure Parks and Activity Centres

There are a number of excellent websites to consult if you are looking for more fishing opportunities.
