Get outdoors, learn new skills and catch a fish!

Angling is the most popular pastime in the UK , with 4m people regularly visiting their nearest spot.

Lots of clubs and organisations host free taster sessions and training for young people.

Angling offers both relaxation as well as excitement and competitions can add extra spice.

The beauty of angling is that you can decide when you go, so long as you have a licence.

An annual junior licence costs just £5, although there may be additional charges on local waters.

Did you know that it is currently National Fishing Month? Most of the activities are now on Plings - try searching, or check the website directly..
