Get Fishing Events

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.

Because of the the current health crisis please call or contact the organisers to double check they are running before you set of. 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 within Government guidance.

For further information contact your nearest Participation Team member here.

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.
