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 this summer at events near you
Three cheers for six anglers! These hardy souls (plus the photographer!) braved the recent cold weather to use their recently acquired Anglers Against Litter kits to clean up their local lake Coppice Pool, near Inkberrow in Worcestershire.
After a few hours around the Birmingham Anglers Association fishery, they collected three large black bags of litter, most of which was hidden in the undergrowth. The collection was then graded with much of it being suitably recycled.
The Angling Trust’s Anglers Against Litter campaign is sponsored by tackle manufacturers Shimano and supported by the Environment Agency. More than 100 angling clubs have signed up to receiving litter picking kits and pledge to carry out at least two organised litter picks per year.
