Families and people of all ages with an interest in fishing went along to an open day.

Future Fishing, based at Hardy’s Business Park, Farndon, held the open day on Saturday, and organisers said hundreds of people of all ages went along to the event, which featured special appearances from celebrity anglers.

Former British carp record holder Oz Holness attended, as well as Alan Blair, Oli Davies, Dan Wildbore and Gaz Fareham, who were happy to sign autographs for youngsters during the day.

There were rig and bait demonstrations, which showed the best ways to use the equipment.

A barbecue was also provided with sausages and burgers from the neighbouring Hardy’s Farm Shop.

George James, of Future Fishing, said: “We had a great day. It was really well attended and the guys who represented our suppliers were really engaging, especially with the young people and encouraging them to get into fishing.”

Future Fishing was established in 2008 by local man Tony Porter after working with the Prince’s Trust to establish a business to offer fishing fans everything they could need to nurture their hobby, from bait to rods and accessories.

As his business grew, he struggled to cope with the huge demand from customers, so Future Fishing relocated to its current base in 2016 and has gone from strength to strength.
