Kids Learn to Fish

Kids learn to fish at Birchmere Park, starting 13th July .

Get Fishing events will encourage adults, children and young people to discover what angling is all about and take up fishing. You’ll find out how to use fishing tackle and bait to catch fish and return them safely. Get Fishing volunteers overseeing the event will provide you with more info about your local club or fishery, so you know where to go fishing next time.

Tackle: Tackle, bait, lures or flies will be provided on the day. Just come along – no need to bring any equipment.
Anything else? Outdoor events are weather dependent so please bring something to keep you dry and/or sunblock and a drink. For events including “game angling” we recommend that you wear a hat and glasses/sunglasses to protect your head and eyes while casting.

Disability information: Volunteers and coaches at Get Fishing events are provided with essential best practice guidance on working with and planning events for disabled and mobility impaired people. Please check with the venue contact about the facilities available
