Our team love fishing so to encourage others to join us we’ve teamed up with Fishing Republic (Go-Outdoors) who have donated a set of Shakespeare fishing tackle perfectly suited to get you or someone you know started. If your are already an angler it would make the ideal starter kit for a youngster who you would like to encourage into the sport.

Anyone who is interested in taking up angling but doesn’t know where to start should look at the Angling Trust’s Get Fishing initiative which is designed to help people of all ages and abilities to try fishing. The initiative is supported by a team of angling coaches and venues who are experienced in teaching beginners the basics of fishing.

Whatever type of fishing takes your fancy, ‘Get Fishing’ has something for everyone. The initiative offers a range of events and activities, including family fishing days, coaching sessions, and taster sessions. These events are held at locations all across the UK, making it easy for you to find one that’s convenient for you.

‘Get Fishing’ venues provide all the necessary equipment and gear for participants, so you don’t need to worry about taking anything along. The coaches will teach you everything you need to know about fishing from how to cast to how to land your first fish.

How do I enter?

All you have to do is enter your name and email address in the boxes below and tick the accept terms and conditions.

What do I win?

  1. Shakespeare 4M Whip set – which includes a pole rig, ready to bait up and get in the water. Just add some bait, what could be easier!
  2. Shakespeare 9ft Float and Reel set – This nice little two piece rod and lightweight rear drag reel (line included) is the perfect starter kit.
  3. Tackle box – This little box is packed full of useful stuff you need, floats, hooks, weights, feeders, disgorger, swivels, line and even a catapult – awesome!
  4. Landing net – Folds away neatly and is lightweight. Perfect for landing that first perch, roach or even something a bit bigger if you are lucky!
  5. Unhooking Mat – Fish care is important – so when you net that bigger fish, you’ll have a safe surface to unhook your fish on. In the meantime it doubles as an excellent seat pad!
