Angling for beginnners

We specialise in introductions to this amazing sport & recommend 5 years old as a minimum age to start fishing but there really is no age restriction for learning later on in life. Every lesson is tailored to the individual. For younger participants the activities & challenges we set are usually up to 2 hours long & designed to be fun and educational, the perfect conditions for retaining information.

We have a collection & drop off service available for up to 3 people for an additional fee (see T&Cs.) All equipment, bait, certificates & prizes included. Prices start at £25 P/P making it an affordable introduction to this fantastic sport.

 

We even offer advice and support after the lessons are over. Please contact us if you need help finding somewhere to fish, which clubs to join & what equipment to buy.

Please check the fantastic reviews we have on Google & social media from our customers.

Fishing for care homes

We started to offer these in 2023 and they have proved a huge success. Not all residents are physically able to fish but we involve them as much as possible and they enjoy many of the benefits Angling has to offer on their adventure. 

The calm and tranquillity that comes with being near water is such a dramatic change from the inside of their accommodation. We focus on the wildlife, hopefully some sunshine and the feeling of being surrounded by nature.

We ask that residents are always accompanied by support staff and only some of our venues have the facilities required to run these sessions. Please check with us first before booking.

Advanced lessons & guiding

For those who already have experience, we can take you away on an epic guided adventure for as long as you require. Whether you want to catch a new species or learn a new technique we can use our knowledge of venues in the North West to help you achieve your goals.

You can ask us to help you with any aspect of your fishing from chasing predators like Pike, Perch & Wells Catfish to chasing beautiful big Roach, huge Carp & Tench. We'll do our best to accommodate.

Angling activity days

We're also involved in a project called Reel Education which is a free of charge Angling activity day(s) designed for Primary school ages. Qualified Angling coaches would come in to your schools and deliver a fascinating talk either inside or outside the classroom along with P.E style games.

 

The project focuses on safety by the water, increasing children's environmental awareness and why it is so important to preserve our waterways. We also talk about the benefits of fishing to humans. This amazing project is funded by various organisations and coordinated jointly by the Angling Trust. For more information please get in touch or see the Reel Education website. Reel Education - Angling Trust

Social Prescribing

​We're now in the final stages of becoming a provider of fishing for the NHS. Fishing has been scientifically proven to be an effective therapy for a range of mental health conditions. By introducing them to Angling they can use it as a life tool to boost their mood & wellbeing to get them through tough times.
