Welcome to Get Hooked on Fishing!

We are an angling charity which helps provide positive opportunities for young people and communities.

We deliver fun and interactive training around the sport of angling. Our work is designed with the help of young people to give the participants more confidence and to demonstrate that there are alternative pathways and better opportunities available to them.
