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
Take a Friend Fishing is back for summer 2021, giving even more people the chance to get out fishing.
Between Friday 23rd July to Sunday 5th September (inclusive), existing fishing licence holders can register for a FREE one-day fishing licence from the Environment Agency at https://anglingtrust.net/takeafriendfishing/ to take someone they know fishing.
