Fishing Trips from P&O Ferries A Great Catch
P&O Have You Hooked
By TTM on 31 March 2008 in News
New Catch and Cook Cruise a la Carte trips from P&O Ferries could have you hooked. They include the hire of rod and line for customers to try a spot of fishing.
Lucky anglers can hand their catch to the ship’s chef on the outward crossing, to be served on the return, or if the big one got away choose from the restaurant menu.
The idea follows the closure, due to storm damage, of some top angling venues including Folkestone Pier and Dover’s Admiralty Pier extension. Initially the trips will be available from Dover, with Hull and Portsmouth ferries to follow if successful.
P&O Ferries enlisted former sea angling champion Brian Rees for expert guidance on the trips. “Angling is the UK’s biggest participant sport so has huge appeal. We’re all being encouraged to eat more fresh fish and this approach avoids any negative by-catch issues associated with some forms of netting,” Mr Rees explained.
Statutory minimum size limits will be strictly adhered to but it isn’t small fry that intrigue Mr Rees. “The dream is for someone to land a British record,” he said.
Catch and Cook Cruise a la Carte is available from 1 April with prices from £32.50 per person - the same as the standard Cruise a la Carte package from P&O Ferries but with rod, reel, terminal tackle, and fresh or frozen bait all included.
