The Get Fishing campaign to get more people fishing more often is funded by the Environment Agency from fishing licence income, and Sport England.
If you go fishing independently of events on this website you’ll need to get a fishing licence first at Fishing licences for juniors under the age of 16 are free, but you still need to register and receive a licence in order to go fishing.
