Newsletter January 2017

We are planning to redevelop the FishPal site in 2017 and we need your help!

As we turn the clock into 2017 and with our rivers literally opening up for business for the new season, many of you will be looking to book a fishing trip, find out about river levels or maybe even read reports on our various site pages. The FishPal family of site pages has grown to be pretty comprehensive over the last decade and thank you for continuing to support all that we do in such huge volumes.

We have made a strategic decision to significantly invest in a complete refresh of the design of our site, that will not only continue to give you access to your favourite pages, but also allow us to add new services and pages in the months to come that will further help you find out about all aspects of fishing both here in the UK and indeed internationally.

Before we embark on all the changes, we need your help in making sure that we have all your own thoughts and feedback on what else we should be considering as part of our redesign work that we can build into our planning.
