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
Seaham Angling Sea Fishing Club take young disability groups from Blue Watch Youth Centre out on weekly sea fishing trips. Our Club & Fishery Development Officer Dave Munt (pictured here) helped the club get its “Fishmark” certificate.
Fishmark is the Angling Trust’s award which means easier access for clubs to funding, better publicity, increased membership, priority access to coaches and coaching and increased safety for club members.
It’s FREE of charge so for more info ask your club to contact our Fishmark Lead Officer Darren Birch.
