One of the most popular ways in which the Rivers Trusts introduce people to the water environment is through the delivery of “Learn to Fish Days“.

The “taster”days enable people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to have a go at coarse or flyfishing in a safe environment, with qualified coaches on hand to give one-to-one tuition.

From assembling equipment and how to spot the best places to fish, to casting techniques and health & safety, all aspects of fishing are explained and top tips passed on to the participants.

Whether young or old the anticipation of catching that first fish is always exciting and many of those who attend a Learn to Fish day go on to do more fishing.
