Hundreds of thousands of people regularly (ie once a month) go fishing across England and Wales and usually on one of our waterways. As a charity, we’re encouraging as many people as possible to get into fishing but we need great, experienced coaches to help younger people learn and love angling as much as we do.
Eric Brown, Chairman of Hodnet Angling Club explains in this video why he got involved and became a Let's Fish! coach.

Here at the Canal & River Trust we want to make sure life’s better by water for everyone, with all the access they need to the towpaths, angling clubs and right teaching and support available. In 2017 there were 48 Let’s Fish events up and down the country with hundreds of children getting involved.
It’s one of the reasons our Let’s Fish scheme is running again in 2018 and this time we want the whole family to get involved.
As a Level 2 coach, if you sign up as a partner club to deliver our Let’s Fish programme you’ll have support from our Let’s Fish co-ordinator, Peter Henery. Contact Peter at firstname.lastname@example.org

We're offering coaches the opportunity to improve their narrow canal fishing skills. National canal champion, Simon Mottram, is working with us to train our coaches in the skills they need to successfully fish our canals. It's important that every Let's Fish! coach is skilled enough to make sure everyone who comes along to a Let's Fish! event catches at least one fish. We call it 'Mottification' and this film will give you just a taster of the hints and tips available. (This is a long play video: 1 hour 10 mins)
