Borderlines is an angling engagement project established in 2005 to work throughout the Cumbria area, particularly in and round Carlisle. It provides activities in game, sea and course and works closely with local schools, youth offending teams and the local community to particularly engage those who are disadvantaged, disables or requiring rehabilitation.

It was amongst the first of the projects that we visited and assisted us in understanding the range of work that was being provided through angling. In particular Borderlines exemplified the abundance of opportunity that exists for angling engagement work that is provided through a landscape such as Cumbria, and the valuable local knowledge being accessed by such projects. Our visit involved observation of a session flounder fishing on the Solway Firth with a group of Young Offenders.
