The Angling Trust’s Get Fishing campaign is running events in conjunction with the Lure Angling World Championships at Rutland Water in October to give you and all the family the chance to #getfishing.
About Get Fishing
The Get Fishing campaign is run by the Angling Trust to increase the number of people being introduced to angling across England. Anyone interested in going fishing can find events at www.getfishing.org.uk. The events are for all participants regardless of gender, age, fitness or previous angling experience. They are funded from fishing licence sales by the Environment Agency.
Alongside the World Championships, visitors will have the chance to get involved in coaching sessions led by the friendly, qualified coaches who look to help you learn or brush up on the skills needed to go fishing on your own. The angling activities on offer are designed to encourage adults, children and young people to discover what angling is all about and take up angling. You’ll find out how to use fishing tackle and bait to catch fish and return them safely.
If you’re keen to learn more about attending a Get Fishing event, visit the website at www.getfishing.org.uk, and find one near you.
More details about how to sign up for the Get Fishing sessions will be released nearer to the competition.
