What's happening...

Spring into Fishing is back! A host of free, fun and friendly activity days around the UK for families this March.

Spring Into Fishing events are run by the Angling Trust and funded by the Environment Agency, and are a great way to get everyone out doing something different. A great way to help kids learn new skills outdoors – best of all it won’t cost a penny!

Everything needed to learn more about the wonderful world of fishing is provided on the day, together with events and games, and our friendly volunteers will make everyone really welcome. Spring Into Fishing sessions are for all ages and experience levels so they’re perfect for complete beginners too. Parents and grandparents – just bring the kids along and have a go yourself – come down and get fishing!

We’ll provide you with free tackle, bait, instruction and more info about local clubs and places to go fishing so you know what to do next time. Fishing is a fun, exciting, cheap and healthy outdoor activity plus it’s a great way to enjoy a bit of peace and quiet surrounded by nature. So get out there and get fishing at a Spring Into Fishing event near you!

All of those who attend a Spring Into Fishing event, having registered in advance using their email address on Eventbrite, will go into a draw for the chance to win £350 worth of fishing tackle from Fishingmegastore.com. We know that when you first get into fishing it can be hard to understand where to go and what to use, so three lucky winners will take home £200, £100 or £50 of vouchers to redeem at fishingmegastore.com, justfish.co.uk or chapmansangling.co.uk.*
