Welcome to the Take A Friend Fishing website

“Take A Friend Fishing” (TAFF) is a campaign where UK anglers are encouraged to take a person out who they feel would benefit from a day’s fishing.

Remember when a friend or family member took you fishing when you were young or just starting out?  We bet everyone has experienced a memorable session or two like that – sharing the bank with someone else is always more fun! – And with the Take a Friend Fishing campaign, there is the chance to take someone for FREE.   If you make their day an enjoyable one, you should have another person to go fishing with for life and better still, allow your friends to see the enjoyment you get from Britain’s largest outdoor participated pastime.

The Take A Friend Fishing 2017 dates this year are: 8th April to midnight 23rd April, 16th June to midnight 2nd July and 14th October to midnight 29th October.

So what happens next?

For each TAFF campaign, you can get a FREE one-day rod licence (worth £6) through a number of newspapers, magazines and websites (including this one), so you can take a mate or a family member on a fishing session.

In additional to a FREE rod licence, your friend can also fish for free at a number of individual and Angling Trust fishery and club member venues.  These venues have pledged to support the Take a Friend Fishing campaign by offering FREE day ticket or member passes so that your friend can fish for nothing on their waters.

All you need to do now is cut out or print off the rod licence voucher, fill in your details, validate it online HERE, read the Terms and Conditions, grab your tackle and your voucher and go fishing!
