Fishing is not on the top of the list of things to do when you have been through the trauma of breast cancer, and trying to get your life back together again. But as the members of an organisation called Fishing For Life have discovered it is exactly what this group has helped them to do. SWFFL provides a network of friends and support to help breast cancer patients with ‘moving on’ and coping with difficult times, as well as the ability to share information and experiences with people who can empathise. Thanks to the generosity of various waters and all the volunteers these days are free for the members to attend and also provide them with a social and supportive network.

Not all are advice, some are humorous, others intend to inform on ecological and environmental issues. We are sure you will enjoy reading them.
