What's happening...

Get Fishing events are fun, social & safe fishing days for family groups and individuals of all abilities.

Come and try fishing at our quality assured angling events and discover the wonders of angling! Whether you’re fishing for the first time, heading for a day out with the family, or getting back into angling, fishing is a great way to get out there doing something different and will teach the kids new outdoor skills.

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

So, come on – Get Fishing!

Cost: Free!

Booking: FREE – just turn up and get fishing.

Times: 10:30am – 2pm.

Venue: Poysers Pond, Tamworth Road, Long Eaton, DE72 2HP

Type of Fishing: Coarse angling

Perfect for: Families and kids of all ages and experience levels. People under the age of 18, or vulnerable people under 21 years old must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

What happens on the day: This is all about getting the family into fishing. We’ll show you what angling is all about so you can leave knowing enough of the basics to go and do it yourself. As well as learning how to use tackle and bait, we’ll show you some simple catching techniques and how to return fish safely to the water.

Tackle: Everything you need to get started will be provided, including tackle, bait and rods. Just bring yourselves… and perhaps a picnic!

Anything else? You’ll be outdoors, so pack suitable gear for the weather: boots, waterproofs, sunblock and a drink.

Disability information: Volunteers and coaches at these events are provided with essential best practice guidance on working with and planning events for disabled and mobility impaired people. Please check with the venue contact for specific details of facilities available.
