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
The Angling Trust developed the Get Fishing Awards to help take you on the first steps of your angling journey – from the unforgettable excitement of catching your first fish, right through to becoming a more experienced angler who can set up tackle, safely return your own fish and have the correct Environment Agency fishing licence.
This is the new, progressive introduction to fishing that can be delivered by angling clubs, fisheries, coaches and volunteers over three separate 1hr sessions. Participants will be awarded Bonze (Have A Go) Silver (New Angler) or the very shiny Gold (Angler) badges.
