What's happening...

Let’s Go Family Fishing events are fun, social & safe fishing days for family groups.

Come and try fishing at our quality assured angling events and get into angling. It’s a great way to get the whole family out there doing something different and will show kids new skills to learn in the outdoors.

Everything you need to catch your first fish or learn more about angling is provided and our friendly volunteers will make you really welcome.

So come on – Let’s Go Family Fishing!

Cost: COMPLETELY FREE and all bait, tackle and permits are included.  FLE are able to offer these for free due to the the Angling Trust and Environment Agency who provide funding to help get more people into fishing.

Booking: Required – if you would like to book onto one of these sessions then please give us a ring on 07595 024 363 and we will arrange a time to suit you.

Times: Each Sunday. Times vary – FLE will arrange this with you. The taster sessions are 30 minutes in length and will allow you or your family the opportunity to try fishing for the first time and to see if you like it.

Venue: Greenridge Farm, Green Lane, Ampfield, SO51 9BN

Type of Fishing: Coarse Fishing. These sessions are held on the brilliant Kingfisher Pond at The FLE Fishery in Romsey and allow participants the opportunity to try fishing for the first time.  The FLE Fishery is the perfect place to learn to fish and we hope that once you ‘Get Hooked’ we will see you as regular visitors to FLE in the future!

Other Info: Toilets, good parking, good access. Other outdoor activities to give families a great day out available on site too – see http://flefishing.net for info.

Perfect for: Ideal for families wanting to find a new hobby to do together or families who have a youngster who really wants to try fishing but don’t know where to start.

What happens on the day: 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. Let’s Go Family Fishing coordinators overseeing the event will also provide you with more info about local clubs and fisheries so you know how to go fishing again next time.

Tackle & bait: Provided – just come along – no need to bring anything!
