Plans are underway to set up the UK’s first indoor fishery. It’s the brainchild of Simon Hughes, the man credited with creating the F1 carp, who wants to create an angling “Centre Parcs” modelled on the successful family leisure holiday centres. This week’s Angling Times says Hughes is willing to put £6million towards the project, and is now looking for a suitable site. He said that it would offer attractions and amenities for the whole family, and give anglers the chance to catch carp and barbel all year round without being affected by the weather. It sounds like Hell to me, but I’m sure that if it gets off the ground, it would, depressingly, prove highly successful.
