Still time to Take A Friend Fishing!

TV star gives backing to National Fishing Month

by Angling Times |

JODIE Kidd – fashion model, racing driver and TV personality – is urging beginners and families to try fishing this August.

As part of National Fishing Month, Jodie is encouraging people to give fishing a go during the school holidays and learn a new skill. There are more than 250 free angling events across the country as part of the drive to promote fishing.

Jodie says:

“The events are ideal as a beginner, like myself and my family, for you to get involved with the wonderful world of fishing.”

In addition, the Angling Trust’s Take a Friend Fishing scheme is running until September 5, where you can apply for a free rod licence.
