REVEALED: Results of the Game Fishing & Shooting Census 2013

July 23rd, 2013 0 comments

We have the responses to many questions including; 

How are fisheries stocked?

Do most fisheries have a catch and release policy?

How many times do people on average fish within a year? and much more.......

So what does the census tell us?

Launched at the Game Fair, with nearly 4,000 respondents offering RodsOnRivers and Strutt & Parker their views on Shooting and Fishing this is, we believe, the most comprehensive insight into our sport, reconciling the views from both sides to see whether expectations really are being delivered.

What it tells us should be food for thought for us all.

If we start with results covering fisheries and Rods, there’s one stand-out result from this Census which fishery owners need to consider: a growing mis-match between what owners offer and what Rods want. Whilst Rods continue to spend on their sport, they’re becoming choosier in these straitened times, so it’s the fishery which learn to adapt to the new reality which will prosper.

What are some of the main features of this new reality? Read more in our complete guide to the full results
