On 8th February 2019, Hook anxiously opened our doors after years (and years!) of hard (very hard!) work.
Would they like us? Do people want to fish? Do people like salmon? Are we good enough? Are we pretty enough? What if no-one comes? Have we made a mistake? All these thoughts and more went round and round in our heads.
But you did come, you did like us, and you do like fishing! And we are so grateful to you all. Some of you keep coming back again and again – and we love that. You guys are all awesome and we have loved every minute of teaching you to fish, watching you land your first salmon, watching your kids land their first salmon, laughing, playing, drinking and all the rest of it.
So this weekend (8-9 February) we are having a bit of a celebration. There will be specials on food and activities all weekend. We’ll be running a prize draw for a free fishing experience. On Saturday afternoon from 3-6pm we have live music with Mike Rigg. And if you can get in before we eat it all there will be free birthday cake.
So team, friends, please – come on down to Hook this weekend to celebrate our first birthday with us.
