Get Fishing Events – fishing events and places to fish – where to fish and learn to fish in the UK

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.

Find “Family Friendly Fun Safe Events” here…

Because of the the current health crisis some Get Fishing events have been postponed for a while, but we are gradually adding more events to this page so please check back regularly. You can still go fishing with friends and families and at fisheries and club fishing venues all over England as long as you do it safely and within Government guidelines.

Looking for events to learn how to go fishing in England? We’ve got fishing events near to you. Find events across the North East, North West, West Midlands, East Midlands, East of England, London and the South East and South West Regions of England in the UK.

Want to run a beginner fishing event or help people to get back into angling? We want to hear from clubs, fisheries and other organisations across the region so that we can help you to deliver brilliant low-cost or free fishing events. We can also help get a representative from your organisation trained to become a qualified and licensed angling coach so that you can run your own events and bring the amazing benefits of angling to your communities. In some cases we can help you to access free or low-cost fishing tackle to help newcomers or returners start fishing. We can also help you access event funding for participation events, and get a free fishing licence for beginner events from the Environment Agency. Contact your nearest Participation Team member about opportunities like this.

The Get Fishing campaign to get more people fishing more often is funded by the Environment Agency from fishing licence income, and Sport England. Fishing licences for juniors under the age of 17 are free, but you still need to register and receive a licence in order to go fishing. You can get a fishing licence from the Environment Agency – it only takes a couple of minutes to fish legally.
