South West Fishing For Life was started early in 2008 by Gillian Payne as a non profit organisation to help anyone suffering from, or recovering from, breast cancer. Fly fishing has been found to be very beneficial to anyone with breast cancer as it tones muscles, and talking to other people in the same situation always helps. The club has three groups at; Wimbleball lake on Exmoor, Kennick lake in Devon, and we are delighted to announce the third group at Siblyback in Cornwall which started in the Spring of 2011.
These venues are all South West Lakes Trust lakes, to whom we are most grateful. Tuition and tackle is provided to allow a mornings fishing, with lunch. Other venues are sometimes used and during non fishing months we still meet for fly dressing, socials, talks and other interesting activities. After lunch participants are encouraged to fish independently, with friends or, if tired, are free to return home. All Instructors are professional and hold suitable qualifications and insurance. South West Fishing For Life not only aims to provide fishing for participants but also would like to see other venues set up their own organisation in other areas.
