A note from Group Leader, Paul:

Due to problems arising from a combination of Brexit and CoViD, I have been unable to make any progress with the Fishing section for this group.
I am restricted to the next few months in Ador and will then be returning to the North East (UK) in early January.
Due to the workload resulting from over 18 months of exposure to the elements, I will not be fishing until my return in April next year. I will then organise a meeting locally and move forward from there.
There has been a good response to organising fishing events, both Sea and Coarse, so it will be lovely to meet up with other U3A members and find what they want from the group.
For myself, it is the pleasure of sharing the hobby with like-minded individuals who enjoy fishing wherever there is water, from a pond to the ocean!

If you are interested in joining the group next year, please contact the Group Leader.

About Our Group

Even though I can turn my hand to most aspects of fishing (Coarse, Sea and Game), I would be concentrating on the Coarse type.

If members wanted to pursue other avenues of fishing, then I suggested that someone with that particular interest take up the mantle and handle it within the section as a whole.

The section is to be set up for the enjoyment of members and to learn from others the enjoyment of fishing. There are to be no serious ‘match’ style format, apart from ‘friendly’ competitions if required between ourselves.

I aim to arrange the first trip out, sometime early Spring in the vicinity of Gandia/Oliva.

If someone has not got any fishing tackle, I have no problem with sharing mine on the day.

Same with transport, hopefully we can assist or ‘car share’ with each other to reduce any costs involved.

I aim to run the section without much mention of finance. Apart from the personal outlay on bait, tackle, etc., I see no reason to involve any money at all.

I aim to organise a second meeting in Oliva towards the end of February. I will send details and publish them via the U3A web page when finalised.
