The Angling Trust, Angling Trades Association and Environment Agency have teamed up to give all anglers the perfect opportunity to introduce someone they know to fishing this month with angling being the perfect activity.

Take a Friend Fishing (TAFF) is back for 2020. From 4th July to the 19th July (inclusive), fishing licence holding anglers will be able to register for a free one-day Environment Agency fishing licence worth £6 to take someone they know fishing.

To take advantage of this offer, all licence holding anglers need to do is visit, provide some simple contact details including their fishing licence number and the date of the fishing trip. This will notify their friend who, after checking their details are correct, will be able to go fishing with the fishing licence holder, on the selected day using their own free one-day fishing licence.

To support Take a Friend Fishing the Angling Trust’s Get Fishing Team have created a list of fishing venues that are ideal to take someone during Take a Friend Fishing. They are the perfect places to take a newcomer or anybody who wants to get back into angling after a break from the sport –
