Get Fishing is the Angling Trust’s campaign to get more people fishing more often. Get into fishing at 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 this summer at events near you
HACRO – The Hertfordshire Association for the Care and Rehabilitation of Offenders –
HACRO (The Hertfordshire Association for the Care and Rehabilitation of Offenders) works with offenders to reduce reoffending by providing structure to their lives and improving their mental and physical well-being though activities and support. So far, we have held 16 sessions using the Get Fishing funding and numbers of participants have been growing.
We have been amazed at how therapeutic our participants find fishing. Even those with ADHD, mental health and autism are able to sit at the lakeside quietly and calmly for several hours, (even if they don’t catch anything), when they otherwise find it difficult to sit and focus on anything for more than a few minutes. We are most grateful to the Angling Association, without which we would not have been able to provide this most effective support.
