Life skills and interests
Fishing is a fun, social and inclusive activity that has proven health benefits. This free 8-week angling course gives learners the opportunity to escape the daily demands of life by being in nature, away from the world of technology and the chance to learn a new skill. Learners will discover the equipment and techniques most commonly used in the pursuit of freshwater fish. Delivered by a social enterprise that specialises in outdoor activities, Eden Forest CIC will introduce you to a sport that may transform your life! At the very least it will provide you with the chance to have a laugh, create memories, make new friends, and maybe, just maybe catch a few fish! This course is suitable for beginners and is delivered by qualified, licensed, experienced coaches and all equipment is provided.
