Bait and Tackle
“We don’t bite, the fish do!”
Henfold Bait and Tackle is a small but well-stocked tackle shop
based in the beautifully unspoilt Surrey countryside. A friendly
business run by qualified Level 2 coaches with a huge passion for
angling, Henfold Bait and Tackle is your one-stop-shop for all you
could need to continue fishing.
Although popular with local anglers for their extensive stock and
excellent customer service, Alison and Dave are also keen to promote
good fishing skills, making the sport more accessible to all.
Working through the not-for-profit organisation Reflections Angling
Project, Alison and Dave provide a range of fishing lessons and
coaching for all ages and abilities.
Reflections Angling is just one of many organisations throughout the
country dedicated to promoting angling. The project uses the
recreational interest of angling to help young people understand and
cope with the struggles of everyday life. It also teaches
self-discipline, personal skills, encourages self-confidence and is
a fantastic way of getting outdoors and enjoying the fresh air!
“Our passion for angling drives everything we do. Our vision is
to create a self-sustainable community-based project where everyone
can feel they’re part of one big angling family and benefit from a
strong support network.
“To this end, it is important that we promote angling in all of its
elements, to all ages and abilities in a fun, safe and informative
manner. We believe in sharing our knowledge and skills as young
people are the future of angling. If we can equip them with all they
need to enjoy angling at its best, then we have managed to keep the
passion and sport alive!
“Angling isn’t just about the fish; it’s about the wildlife and
environment, having somebody to spend time with and listen to you,
and having the opportunity to get outdoors whilst learning new
skills. That’s our approach, and since we began the Project, we
truly have impacted some of our students in a life-changing way.
It’s deeply moving and inspires us to continue.”
Just like many other similar projects, Reflections Angling
struggles to secure the funding required to continue operating. With
some help from the large angling companies and traders, Alison and
Dave could maintain their Project, providing coaching and support
for all children and adults in need.
