About National Fishing Month 2017 – 21st July to 3rd September
The idea behind National Fishing Month is to encourage every family member to have a go at fishing. It does not matter what age you are, or what previous experience you have. Nor does it matter which cultural or social background you may be from. Fishing is for everyone!

National Fishing Month is a celebration of the sport of angling. All over the country qualified coaches give their time to welcome newcomers to this marvelous sport. Fees are waived and tackle is often made available free of charge too. Events are organised around the UK to show people who have never fished before how to do it. If you’d like to try fishing then now is your big chance.

From 21st July to 3rd September, there will be hundreds of locally organised angling events offering non-anglers the opportunity to be taught how to fish, FREE OF CHARGE, by a qualified licensed Coach and within a controlled environment.

Interested in organising an event?
Organisers can be angling clubs, schools, tackle shops, fisheries – in fact anyone with an interest in fishing. Many clubs and societies use National Fishing Month as a way of increasing membership.
