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

Let's Fish!

Want to learn to fish? We'll get you up and netting in no time! It’s a great way to unwind and spend time outside in the fresh air with your family. So whether you have never fished before or fancy getting back into it, book your place at one of our free family Let's Fish events this year.

Fishing is fun! It’s good for your mind and body, and something the whole family can get involved with. You'll always remember the first time you caught a fish!

Free fishing events near you

From Easter through the end of the autumn half term holidays, the Canal & River Trust and our partner angling clubs are hosting loads of 'Let's Fish!' learn to fish events up and down the country. Not only can your whole family try fishing for free, at some events, there'll be Explorers activities and canoe taster sessions too.

The good news is we'll provide everything you need for free on the day, such as tackle, bait, a rod licence and your fishing permit as well as expert coaching from one of our licensed Level Two coaches.

Last year's events were really busy, so you'll need to sign up to the event nearest you as soon as possible.
