Fitness - another reason to go fishing

Casting is not only fun, it may get you fitter.

Going fishing is not only a great way to relax and unwind but it also offers health benefits.  So next time you are told you need to do some exercise tell them you are going fishing!

  • Wading for 4 hours burns 4184 kilojoules (1000 calories)
  • Casting works the deltoid, triceps and bicep muscles
  • Swift river currents when wading cause resistance that strengthens muscles in your legs
  • Fighting to land that monster trout strengthens your upper back muscles and shoulders
  • Working to stay upright against the force of water tights your abdominal muscles
  • Scrambling over rocks strengthens your core.

Our Christmas gift to you!

Wishing you and your family a happy and safe Christmas and holiday.
