National Fishing Month (NFM) 2018 –
the highlight of the fishing year –
begins on 27th July and gives everyone the chance to give angling a go
under the guidance of speciallytrained experts… and everything is
NFM is now in its 26th year of unrivalled success, during which it has
helped to introduce hundreds of thousands of people to a lifelong sport and
the huge happiness it brings. Millions
of anglers have discovered already
that angling takes them to beautiful
places to catch wonderful fish, making lots of new friends on the way. It’s
both exciting and relaxing, generating
huge personal satisfaction though
close and informed contact with
nature. Most of all, it’s great fun.
This year there are more than 250
events nationwide, listed online at
www.nationalfishingmonth.com, so
there’ll be a participating venue close
to everyone. Taking part is simplicity
itself – you just need to register online
and then turn up. Everything will be
provided without charge, and most
people will experience the ultimate
thrill of catching their first fish under
the watchful guidance of their coach.
Everyone who takes part will go
home with presents… a NFM ‘goody
bag’ containing the ‘Get Into Fishing’
booklet full of information on how to
get started and advice on different
types of fishing, a log book to make a
note of their first catches and a special certificate as a memento of their
days free fishing.
Naidre Werner, Chairman of the
Angling Trades Association which
organises NFM, commented: “July
and August really will be focused on
angling. There are hundreds of events
going on nationwide, beginning with
a launch event at The Game Fair at
Ragley Hall, near Evesham, Worcestershire (on 27th, 28th and 29th July).
National Fishing Month will have its
own fly and coarse teaching areas.”
Across the country, leading tackle
company supporters such as Daiwa,
Dinsmores, Fladen, Middy, Leeda,
Pure Fishing and Angling Direct have
all donated products and time in support of NFM so that tackle can be
used on the bank for coaching and as
prizes at events.
