Shropshire Union Canal at Soudley, near Market Drayton, Shropshire TF9 2NB
Open to all

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.

Age categories:

Cadets (aged 7 to 10 years on the day of the event). Book HERE.
Juniors (aged 11 to 15 on the day of the event). Book HERE.
Youth (aged 16 to 20 on the day of the event). Book HERE.

Full programme information on the Canal & River Trust website HERE.
