Our Partnership Development Manager James Roche writes…

Our “Let’s Go Family Fishing” initiative visited Lincolnshire where Burgh Angling Society hosted an event to give families the chance to have a go at fishing.

With the sun shining the club’s volunteers helped many families enjoy the magic of catching their very first fish.

Mum Kerry Mullins said: “All six of us caught fish, learnt loads and had a brilliant time. We were made to feel so welcome and will definitely be back for more”.

The “Get Fishing” campaign is run by the Angling Trust to increase the number of people being introduced to angling across the country. Anyone interested in going fishing can find angling events at “Get Fishing Near You“. The events listed are for all participants regardless of gender, age, fitness or previous angling experience.

Angling Participation and the Get Fishing campaign is supported by Environment Agency fishing licence income and helps to introduce thousands of people to fishing each year
