The TAKE A FRIEND FISHING promotion is back to encourage thousands of parents, grandparents and friends to take the time over the Easter break to give family members and friends  the chance to have a go at fishing.

Particularly if there’s nothing they want to watch on the TV and they have an extra few days off work!
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.
Through the Anglers Mail, you can get a free one-day rod licence (worth £3.75) so you can take a mate or a family member on a fishing session between Friday, April 6 and midnight, April 15 2012. 
All you need to do is pick up a copy of the Anglers Mail on the 3rd or the 10th of April or go online to, print out the voucher and fill it in, read the Terms and Conditions, grab your tackle and your voucher and go fishing! 
Each free licence voucher is valid for one day only for all coarse fish and non-migratory trout stillwaters in all waters within England and Wales. 
Environment Agency Angling Participation Manager Richard Wightman said: ‘The message is simple: Take a Friend Fishing! If you have your own full annual licence, we would love you to use the one-day licence voucher to help introduce a friend or family member to go fishing this month.’
