Anyone interested in going fishing can find many more angling events at www.getfishing.org.uk. The events listed are for all participants regardless of age, fitness or previous angling experience. The Get Fishing campaign is run by the Angling Trust to increase the number of people being introduced to angling across the country and get more people fishing, more often. The Angling Trust is the national representative and governing body for angling in England.
The Environment Agency funds the Angling Trust to provide more opportunities for people to go fishing and encourage sales of rod licences. Money from rod licence sales is spent on improving angling habitat and infrastructure through projects like the Angling Improvement Fund.
