Fishability UK

Dear Friend,

Introducing FISHABILITY UK providing fishing experiences for ex-forces personnel who are receiving physical or psychological rehabilitation.

Our aim is to use fishing as a support mechanism for ex-forces personnel finding difficulty in rehabilitating back into mainstream activities.

By finding some peace and solitude, and a focus for quiet contemplation, whilst making new friends, those seeking valuable space and time will then be able to regroup and move forward.

Having defended our realm, our boundaries, and our freedom, the very least we can do is respect that fantastic commitment and give them something back.

In a fishing context, FISHABILITY UK plans to network those that can give help to those that really need it, by pooling and redistributing the kind and generous donation of goods and services.

These resources will go directly towards providing fishing experiences, whether on a 1:1 basis, or for groups.

Fishing has been proven to be an excellent therapy in countering psychological wounds, which can go undiagnosed even years after forces’ service has been concluded.

  1. What a great idea. Joined the trip to Bewl yesterday and had a very enjoyable time with some great people. Having always valued fishing as a very effective way to unwind, to appreciate how good life can be, I can see how Fishability can help anyone step out from under the cloud and into the sunshine.
    Best wishes to all involved.

    • Inspite of what the weather could throw at us, it turned out to be a terrific fishing day Steve, glad you enjoyed it. See you next time. Rgds Tony.

  3. Thanks to Tony and the lads for all their help with the bank maintenance down on the Tillingbourne at the weekend. A really great bunch of blokes, and I hope they enjoyed it as much as I did. I look forward to seeing them all there again next year when the trout season opens (but with their rods, rather than saws and shovels).
    Best regards, Rob.

  4. To echo Rob’s (aka “Masterchef”) comments, many thanks to all the guys who came and restored some bank, strimmed, trimmed etc on the Tillingbourne. Your efforts are greatly appreciated. Look forward to seeing you in the spring and see if anyone can rise to the challenge of catching a fish off “your” bit of bank. The prize for any non-drinkers is not agreed and open to further discussion.
    All the best, Mike
