Have a go at fishing at the The National Celebration of Young People and Fishing 2021 – Shropshire Union Canal at Shebdon, Staffordshire ST20 0PX
Held every year on the third weekend of September, this event is the UK’s largest national celebration of young peoples’ fishing. The aim is to make sure participants have a fun day, land a few fish, learn something new, meet new friends and end up being inspired to come back to our waterways time and time again.
Winning a prize or being crowned champion would of course be a dream come true but taking part in this unique occasion is something that every young person aged between 7 and 20 is now able to do.
