THE Environment Agency is encouraging would-be anglers to give fishing a go this summer as National Fishing Month gets underway.

Anyone, young or old, who has ever thought of giving fishing a go will now have a chance.

Between July 18 and August 31 events will be taking place across the Midlands to inspire a new generation of people to take up the sport.

Al Watson, Fisheries Enforcement team leader for the Environment Agency, said: "Fishing is an excellent way to enjoy the outdoors, has great health, welfare and educational benefits and it is important to our economy. National Fishing Month is a great way to get started."

And for those thinking of taking part, the month starts with a voucher for a free rod licence. Visit www.takeafriendfishing.co .uk/offers/free-rod-licence-voucher to download and print yours.
