The 'Take a Friend Fishing' campaign is back to encourage keen anglers to take their friends and family fishing.
Through the scheme, run by the Angling Trades Association, you can get a free one-day rod licence (worth £3.75) for your pal to use between May 25th and midnight, June 2nd 2013 and a free day ticket voucher, to allow them to fish at a number of Angling Trust fishery and club member venues.
Download the one-day rod licence voucher here (it needs to be validated online at www.takeafriendfishing.co.uk)
Contact your local fishery here and make your own specific arrangements with them - check www.takeafriendfishing.co.uk for a list of day ticket offers.
All you need to do now is print off the rod licence voucher, fill in your details, validate it online at www.takeafriendfishing.co.uk, read the Terms and Conditions, grab your tackle and your voucher and go fishing!
Then let us know how you get on by emailing pictures (including venue name, catch details, your info and daytime telephone number) to email@example.com
Jeremy Wade, author, TV presenter of River Monsters and Angling Trust Ambassador said: "The Take a Friend Fishing campaign is a great way for people to learn the angling basics and appreciate the outdoors. By introducing newcomers to the sport, you pass on a gift that stays with them throughout their lives, taking them to beautiful places to catch exciting fish."
The free rod licence voucher cannot be used to fish for coarse fish on any river, stream or drain in England and Wales between March 15 and June 15 inclusive. Salmon and migratory trout fishing is not included in this offer. The closed season may apply to some canals and still waters in your area - please check before going fishing.
