The Social Distancing Sport

In March 2020 the UK and the world experienced a global disaster in the form of a virus known as Coronavirus (COVID-19). This world Pandemic locked us in our homes for weeks on end, taking our freedom and restricting us from living a normal life.

However, there is always light at the end of the tunnel and with restrictions being slowly lifted and some normal life being resumed, we start to look at hobbies, activites and sports that offer social distancing for individuals and families

During lockdown, many people in the UK have had the free time to reflect and take note of the remarkable nature around us. By taking part in fishing, you can build upon that appreciation of wildlife and the great outdoors, as fly fishing offers unique access into a sport that can offer the isolation that many people will still feel reassured by.

Fly Fishing to Improve your Mental Health and Anxieties

With full lockdown lasting weeks and everyone's mental health and anxiety levels in need of a serious boost, Fly Fishing Yorkshire is here to help. Fly Fishing requires lots of focus and awareness. This takes your mind off internal conflict and stress, similar to meditation. As a result, it helps to reduce anxiety, fight off depression, and promote relaxation. Studies have shown that fly fishing lowers your cortisol levels (otherwise known as the stress hormone). I think we are all in need of this at the moment!

We can offer you so much more than fishing; tranquil dales and valleys, breathtaking scenery, incredible wildlife, and the opportunity to be in secluded places where there are no people for miles. Just put on those waders and experience a running river and indulge in nature.

We have already put strict measures in place to ensure your safety at all times. We are adhearing to the Angling Trust's Phase 1 guidlines for coaches and guides. Rest assured you can have the confidence that you will be with someone who genuinely cares for your safety and mental wellbeing.

If you would like to contact me regarding your interest in fly fishing during these uncertain times, please feel free to get in touch.
