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
Anglers with special needs use fishing’s life-skills
Our Club & Fishery Development Officer Dave Munt helped a local community group fund its project… Dave writes:
The Brian Newton Memorial cup was set up in memory of a well-loved carer who helped disabled and injured adults in their day-to-day lives. Teams from Health Works Newcastle, Momentum North East, Momentum Skills and Angling4All took part in the first match last summer and everybody caught a fish.
I supported the day as part of its work to get these group’s customers rehabilitated into everyday life, independent living and in some cases employment through angling.
The fishing is funded by a Small Grants award that I helped to arrange – all of our team have experience finding this kind of funding and if you know a group who could benefit like this we will always try to help.
