National Fishing Month

26th July to 1st September 2019

All the latest news...

What is it all about?

Jan 01 2019

National Fishing Month offers unique opportunities for the protection and promotion of angling. It has the potential to:-

  • Increase the number of people getting involved in the sport.
  • Inform the general public about the economic, social and environmental benefits of angling.
  • Influence decisions about access, environmental policy and wildlife management so that they take the importance of angling into account.
  • Improve diversity amongst anglers to counter any perception that it is exclusively a male, white, able-bodied only pursuit.

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 26th July to 1st September, there will be hundreds of locally organised angling events offering non-anglers the opportunity to be taught how to fish, 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.
