South West Fishing for Life





July 15th SWFFL we hosted  a cookery day at Wimbleball lake  with celeberaty chef Ryan Riley from Life Kitchen.  He demonstrated recipes for people who have had cancer treatments and struggle with enjoying food again. It was a very enjoyable day and evryone learnt something about taste!

The Cornwall/Siblyback groups lead coach has had to retire due to his health.We ar hoping to find a replacement.



We are always looking for Level 2 coaches to help with the growing groups and volunteers to make cups of tea and chat with people. If you would like to get involved please contact  Patrick Chairman  ,  Sally fishing co-ordinator  or Gillian -secretary   Thank you..









Wimbleball Lake, Exmoor, Somerset

Wimbleball lake 400 acres of water lies like a jewel amidst rolling moor land and thickly wooded areas. This is where South West Fishing For Life was born. In 2008 on a cold but sunny April day we held a Taster Day with just 5 ladies!


As the years have gone by we have grown.
