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
Young people from across Nottinghamshire have enjoyed the chance to go fishing at a series of weekly coaching sessions to boost their angling skills at Oak Tree Lakes Fishery. It’s part of our national “Get Into Angling” initiative to get more young people fishing and at most events the cost of bait, tackle use and a day ticket is all included.
If you want to help introduce a youngster to the sport you love, contact your Angling Trust Development Officer.
