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
We’ve kicked off a new Twitter campaign called #FishingHour to bring the angling Twitter community together at 4-5pm (GMT) every Friday with questions, tips, stories, and just general fishing conversation. There are lots of other “Twitter Hours” for sports, hobbies, places and communities, but not yet one for anglers and the angling industry. Let’s all put this right!
It would be great if you could help promote this by joining the conversation each Friday between 4-5pm using #fishinghour.
All you need to do to join in is post your own question, advice, product news, or ideas on where to go fishing this weekend with the hashtag #fishinghour, or even simpler, just include that hashtag in anything you’ve already got scheduled for between 4-5pm on Friday(s) then we will retweet and reply to help spread the word.
