In the above video Keith Barry, Magician, Hypnotist and keen angler has shown his support for Inland Fisheries Ireland Go Fishing Week 2021. Keith talks about how fishing helps him to alleviate the everyday stresses of life and gives him such much needed head space. One of the many health and well-being benefits of angling and being in the outdoors.
‘Such a wonderful thing to go down onto the banks of a river or down near the sea and think of nothing except just the purity of being in nature and being near the sea or some water and just thinking where are those fish!’
‘I would encourage each and everyone of you when it’s safe to do so this year to get out on the banks of a river, get down to the sea either on your own or with friends.’
Go Fishing Week takes place from Sunday, 25th of April to Monday, 3rd of May with a packed nine days full of virtual events and competitions for all!
