Come and learn about sea angling and the marine environment at our Angling Trust Family Fishing Days with new dates to be added shortly.

The Angling Trust is teaming up with Angling Spirit to provide an opportunity for families to learn more about why angling is such a great sport to get involved with and give people the opportunity to learn more about how to get started – including opportunities to get fishing.

Based on the same format as the Angling Trust Shoreham Port Family fishing days (Link: people can come along and enjoy the seaside environment, learn how to catch fish from qualified angling coaches, have a go at fishing for mackerel on board the designated charter boats available specifically for this event, and learn more about marine conservation with beach safaris and other activities.

  • Tackle and bait provided
  • Learn about angling
  • Fully qualified coaches
  • Local Angling Clubs involved

Learn about marine conservation and why it’s so important to cherish the marine environment.

As well as angling on site there will also be opportunities to learn more about the marine coastal ecosystem with the Hampshire Wildlife Trust and Marine Conservation Society who will also have their Good Fish Guide available to illustrate what fish are sustainable to eat.

The Angling Trust is a not for profit organisation recognised by the government as the National Governing Body for angling in England and Wales. They campaign, deliver and fight for the conservation and protection of angling and the environment whilst providing opportunities for all to participate. Between 2019-2020 they helped over 37,000 people try fishing for the first time!

There are so many ways to get involved from becoming a members or a coach to volunteering:

  • Anyone can become a member of the Angling Trust and together their mission is to be a united front to represent, grow and protect the sport of fishing. Members receive exclusive discounts on bait, tackle and other items from suppliers including White Acres Holiday Parks, Fishin Addict and Cotswold Outdoor.
  • To become an angling coach the Angling Trust’s coaching centres currently offer nationally-accredited qualifications and workshops. They also provide guidance on safeguarding children. To learn more visit the Angling trust page.
  • Volunteering within the Angling Trust is so important as without the thousands of hours volunteers contribute every year to support angling it wouldn’t be possible to preserve the future of the sport. You could get involved in competition support to helping promote environmental campaigns.
