THERE are events nationwide over the weeks ahead, giving everyone the chance to give angling a go under the guidance of specially-trained experts.
National Fishing Month 2018 begins on Saturday, July 27 and runs right through until September 2.
The annual jamboree is now in its 26th year, and it has helped to introduce hundreds of thousands of people to a lifelong sport and the huge happiness it brings.
This year there are more than 250 National Fishing Month events nationwide, listed online.
The website to visit is www.nationalfishingmonth.com – and there’ll be a participating venue close to everyone.
The website can be searched by entering your postcode. The nearest events and their details will then be shown and you will be able to book a coaching time to suit you.
Taking part in National Fishing Month
Taking part is simplicity itself – you just need to register online and then turn up.
Everything will be provided without charge, and most people will experience the ultimate thrill of catching their first fish under the watchful guidance of their coach.
Everyone who takes part will go home with presents… a National Fishing Month goody bag containing the ‘Get Into Fishing’ booklet.
It’s full of information on how to get started and advice on different types of fishing.
There’s also a log book to make a note of first catches and a special certificate as a memento of the day’s free fishing.
National Fishing Month organisers & supporters
Naidre Werner, chairman of the Angling Trades Association, which
organises National Fishing Month , said: “July and August really will be focused on angling.
“There are hundreds of events going on nationwide, beginning
with a launch event at The Game Fair at Ragley Hall, near Evesham,
Worcestershire (on 27th, 28th and 29th July). National Fishing Month
will have its own fly and coarse teaching areas.”
Across the country, leading tackle company supporters such as Daiwa,
Dinsmores, Fladen, Middy, Leeda, Pure Fishing and Angling Direct are involved.
They have all donated products and time in support of National Fishing Month so that kit can be used on the bank for coaching and as prizes at events.
