“Having been an enthusiastic admirer of Fishing for Schools ever since its earliest days, I feel privileged to have become an ambassador as it seems to me to be everything such a charity should be. It is run in impressively streamlined fashion, and you can see exactly where the funding goes; and the results are readily visible, too, on the faces of those many young people who have never before had the happy experience (which some of us perhaps take for granted) of fun and a fresh perspective away from the Great Indoors." 

David Profumo, Eminent Angler, Author and F4S Ambassador.

Joining as a Patron means you are helping…

  • Build new and adapt our programmes to meet the specific needs of the young people participating in Fishing for Schools.

  • Develop a portfolio of fishing qualifications, built around key curriculum subjects, as a way of engaging pupils and the development of soft skills.

  • Grow our coaching team and extend our reach across the country.

  • Deliver our popular inter school competition in Kent.

  • Embrace additional subjects to enhance learning, including cooking and art.

  • Reach hundreds of young people each year through our schools programme.

 

We have ambitious plans, which can only be realised through the support of generous individuals who share our vision for high quality angling education.
