We want to get more people fishing and with family-friendly events, National Fishing Month is your chance!

The Angling Trades Association created this initiative to encourage more people to get a taste for fishing, and with support from the Angling TrustEnvironment Agency and Canal & River Trust amongst others, National Fishing Month is reaching an ever-growing number of people, encouraging the next generation of anglers to enjoy time by the water.

We want our wonderful waterways to feel an open and inviting place for everybody and raise awareness that fishing is about so much more than catching a fish!
