Half-term fishing

Kids love fishing, and this autumn the Angling Trust has launched a series of fishing events across the country aimed at introducing youngsters to fishing this half-term.

Fishing events across the country are already occurring, with all the tackle one might need to take part included in the package. Families – irrespective of age or ability – can spend some time outdoors and fishing together through this initiative, even if they do not possess any gear.

There are a whole range of fishing events running this half-term throughout the country. ‘Family Fishing’ activities are ideal for newcomers of all ages, or anyone who has just been fishing a few times. Short, fun, safe and friendly sessions with a fishing licence, tackle and bait included to teach you how and where to fish. Anyone can try fishing for the first time, or brush up on existing skills.

Those who may have fished previously can also reconnect with fishing through the ‘Get back into angling’ scheme, which includes four hours of advice on the latest tackle and methods or the opportunity to try a new type of fishing. Everything is included on the day, or you can bring your own tackle. Over the next couple of weekends, the scheme is taking place on reservoirs at Farmoor in Oxfordshire, Rutland Water, Pitsford in Northamptonshire and Totnes, Devon. Juniors are welcome too, so long as they are accompanied by an adult angler. (Rod licences for 12-16 year olds are free).

Also running this half term is the Trust’s ‘Take a friend fishing’ scheme which works in tandem with the Environment Agency and enables any angler to take a friend or family member fishing for a day without them needing to buy a fishing licence. There are opportunities up and down the country for you to introduce someone to angling.
