Welcome to Young Anglers

Our aim is to provide all young people with the opportunity to experience the sport of Angling.

We offer a variety of opportunities through our programmes:


All programmes are delivered by Level 2 Angling Coaches licensed by the Angling Trust. They are all DBS checked, insured and hold a valid first aid qualification.

It doesn’t matter whether young people have never fished before, fished a little or fished a lot! We have programmes suitable for everyone. Equipment,bait, licences and fishery fees are provided.
