Why don’t you TAKE A FRIEND FISHING during National Fishing Month (NFM) and follow thousands of parents, grandparents and friends who enjoy quality time together at the waterside over the summer holidays? It’s a hugely enjoyable way to strengthen relationships and it often leads to lasting participation in angling.
To take a family member or friend on a fishing session between 20th July and midnight, 28th July 2013, cut out the FREE rod licence voucher (worth £3.75) from any number of magazines and newspapers, scan the QR code or download a voucher.
As with previous TAFF initiatives this year, when you’ve chosen where you’d like to fish, all you need to do to complete the rod licence voucher is fill in the person’s details, validate it online at Take A Friend Fishing, read the Terms and Conditions, grab tackle, bait and voucher… and go fishing!
Each free licence voucher is valid for one day only for all coarse fish and non-migratory trout waters within England and Wales.
In additional to a FREE rod licence, your family member or friend can also fish for free at a number of Angling Trust fishery and club member venues. These Angling Trust members have pledged to support the Take a Friend Fishing campaign during National Fishing Month by offering FREE day ticket or member passes so that your friend can fish for nothing on their waters. Some of them may also be organising NFM events, check www.nationalfishingmonth.com for participating venues in your area.
Environment Agency Fisheries Regulation and Use Manager, Richard Wightman said: “The message is simple: Take a Friend Fishing! If you have your own full annual licence, we would love you to use the one-day licence voucher to help introduce a friend or family member to go fishing during National Fishing Month.”
The Take A Friend Fishing team welcomes feedback on how people enjoyed the day, together with emailed pictures (including venue name, catch details, captor’s name and daytime telephone number). These should be sent to: email@example.com
