Welcome to the National Fishing Month website. This year, National Fishing Month will begin on the 18th July, and conclude on the 31st August.
As in previous years, the idea is to encourage every family member to have a go at fishing from whatever cultural or social background they may be from. Fishery owners, organisers and angling coaches give up their valuable time to support this initiative so please take this opportunity to have a go at this wonderful sport.

This year’s National Fishing Month (NFM) has shattered its 15,000 target, setting new records for the number of people who were introduced to the sport via more than 300 special events throughout the country. When the final figures are tallied, it is likely that participant numbers will be closer to 16,000, much to the delight of the NFM organisers.

National Fishing Month offers unique opportunities for the protection and promotion of angling. It has the potential to:-
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 marvellous 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.
What is actually going to happen?
From 18th July to 31st August, 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.
Do you want to organise an event?
National Fishing Month falls apart without the assistance of event organisers. We are therefore searching for volunteers to run National Fishing Month events.
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.
