Our initial programme was launched in 2007 to assist students with learning difficulties by offering fishing related activities as a way back into formal education and learning; in the classroom, on field trips, or a combination of both.

By 2012, mainstream schools were asking to join our programme. It became apparent that our unique provision offered opportunities for young people from a variety of backgrounds and abilities to enjoy learning and gain a wealth of skills through angling.


Today we have upwards of 16 coaches supporting young people at over 30 schools annually across the country.
