Tell us about your Angling Participation Event

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. Get Fishing angling events are for anyone who wants to get into fishing, get back into angling or find out where to go fishing, who to go fishing with, what to use to start fishing and how to go fishing for the first time.

Get Fishing events are perfect for families looking for beginner sessions to learn to fish or get back into angling after a break. If you want your club, fishery or other organisation to to benefit from exposure that being part of our Get Fishing campaign already brings to many other organisations like yours, as well as the possibility of funding, grants and support with tackle, bait or other equipment and funding (subject to availability) don’t miss out – use the form below to tell us about your event. You’ll soon hear back from  your local Regional Angling Development Officer – you can find the nearest one to where you will be running fishing events here.

Our Partners



The Angling Trust’s ‘Get Fishing’ campaign is proudly supported by
Shakespeare, Exclusive Tackle Partner and Angling Direct, Exclusive Retail Partner
as we all work towards getting more people fishing, more often.


The Get Fishing campaign to get more people fishing more often is funded by the Environment Agency from fishing licence income as part of the National Angling Strategic Services contract with the Angling Trust, and Sport England. Children under 13 do not need a licence, and licences for children aged between 13 and 16 are free but you still need to register and receive a licence in order to go fishing. You can get a licence for the full year, for 8 days (ideal for holidays!) or just a day’s fishing.

NOTE: Although young children who are under 13 year old do not need a licence to fish, the person supervising them needs the proper fishing licence to take hold of the rod or to help the child fish with it.






Thanks for your interest in the Get Fishing campaign – if you’ve just sent your details this is to let you know that we’ve got your info and the Regional Angling Development Officer for your Region will be in touch. Please allow 24hrs but if you’d like to get in touch sooner here are their details.
