We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

Go Fish!

We want to get more people hooked on fishing. It’s a great way to unwind and spend time outside in the fresh air. Come and have a go for free at one of our taster sessions this summer.

Fishing is fun! It’s good for your mind and body, and something the whole family can get involved with. Who can ever forget the thrill of catching their first fish?

This summer, we’re celebrating National Fishing Month with a host of events up and down the country where you can try fishing for free. And that's not all. We're also giving away a number of fishing starter kits completely free of charge.

To receive a free fishing starter kit you need to find your nearest taster session from the list below and then register for your kit in advance.  All Go Fish events are free and not ticketed, no need to register for the event itself, just turn up on the day.
