Let’s Fish–Try family fishing for free
Fishing is fun, its free and it’s a great way to spend time outside in the fresh air with your family. Whether you want to learn about fishing for the first time or you’d like a chance to practice your skills join one of 250 Let’s Fish events organised by the Canal & River Trust on a canal or river close to you.
Always dreamt of catching a whopper? Well whether it’s a pike or a perch or a salmon or a silver bream we'll get you up and netting in no time! Not only will you have fun its good for your mind and body being outdoors and watching the wildlife around you. You’ll learn all about the different fish that live in our waterways and what you can expect to catch on your own local canal or river.
Don't worry if you don't have your own rod and tackle. Experienced coaches will be on hand with all the kit and bait so you just need to book in and turn up on the day. We’ll teach you about the different fishing tackle you can use, we’ll practice with you and we’ll have you reeling-in your very first fish.
What’s more you’ll be able to discover more about the historic canals and rivers on your doorstep. Watch the colourful canal boats navigate locks and tunnels and look out for swans, ducks and geese, jewel-like damselflies and dragonflies plus, if you’re very lucky, the occasional electric-blue flash of a kingfisher.
The Let’s Fish Events are free but must be booked in advance visit www.canalrivertrust.org.uk/lets-fish to book your place and download a fascinating fish guide filled with loads of fun facts, activities and hints and tips to help you and your family cast off with confidence.
