Spring is a fantastic time of year to get outdoors and enjoy some time next to the water. The new Get Fishing Spring Series with Jimmy Willis will show some of the benefits of spring fishing – while using baits you can buy from any supermarket!
In Episode 3, Dean Asplin (Angling Development Manager [South], Angling Trust) shows us a basic surface fishing setup and Zenia Drury-Gregoreke (Angling Trust Ambassador) tries to catch one.
Find events to go fishing this spring at: https://www.anglingtrust.net/getfishing. You will need a rod fishing licence from the Environment Agency to fish for freshwater fish in England (except the River Tweed), Wales and the Border Esk region of Scotland. You can purchase one here: https://www.gov.uk/fishing-licences
Licences for children aged between 13 and 16 are free, but you’ll still need to get one. You must always carry your rod fishing licence when you’re fishing or you could be prosecuted. You can get all the fishing tackle used in this video from Angling Direct: https://www.anglingdirect.co.uk/
