“I prefer nature to screens, it’s much better!” Fishing is attracting more and more young people from Charentais

For around four years, the Charente fishing federation has noted an increase in membership among under-18s. These young people participate at least once a month in practical workshops throughout the department and find the pleasure of nature and the discovery of a healthy leisure activity.

They are between eight and fourteen years old and at least once a month, they meet on a body of water for a fishing workshop. That day, the meeting is near Angoulême, in the middle of nature. The time has come to disconnect, the preoccupation of the moment is to watch for the carp.

I prefer nature to screens, it’s much better!

Clement Morelleau is 12 years old and he is one of the fans of this leisure sport: “ It works on patience whereas football is a little more sporty.”

Maël Jendo9 years old, appreciates this contact with the environment: “It’s linked to nature and I like that. I prefer nature to screens, it’s much better ! “
