Summer was made for fishing. Fishing teaches kids patience, skill, preparation, organisation and determination. It is an opportunity to spend calm and wholesome time with family and friends in the great outdoors.
Junior fishing licences are now free for 12-16 year olds – including trout and migratory licences. They still need to get a licence online but it is quick and easy.
Fishing needn’t be expensive. We support our partners, including the Angling Trust, in running free introductory courses up and down the country.
