Get Fishing is the Angling Trust’s campaign to get more people fishing more often. Each year we run hundreds of events for all ages and abilities. They are funded by the Environment Agency from fishing licence income
Beginner angling events - want to get into fishing? Get back into angling, find out where to go fishing, accessible venues, who to go fishing with, tackle to use to start fishing and how to go fishing for the first time.
Fishing can be prescribed to help physical and mental health and wellbeing issues. Get Fishing for Wellbeing Approved Partners use quality assured angling services to treat symptoms of PTSD, anxiety, depression, loneliness and many long-term conditions
Ken said: “It was a really lovely day and Mike was brilliant. He gave me lots of information on tackle and demonstrated different ways to attach hooks and floats as this is the type of fishing I like to do.
I’ll definitely be returning to many wonderful days on lakes, rivers and canals. I had a wonderful return to fishing and will be introducing my grandson to our exciting and rewarding sport.”
It’s feedback like this that prove to me how important it is to get families fishing together. Even after taking a break for a few years we can help you get back into angling… Find FREE Get Back Into Angling sessions HERE.
