Take your Father Fishing for Free on June 16th (or a friend!)

03.06.14

TAFF voucher 2014

Mums and families are being encouraged to give dad the perfect gift this Father’s Day – get him fishing! The Father’s Day special promotion is part of the annual TAKE A FRIEND FISHING (TAFF) campaign, organised and run by the Angling Trades Association in association with the Environment Agency and supported by Angling Trust fishery members.

The 2014 river coarse fishing season starts the day after Father’s Day, and Environment Agency annual rod licence holders can take a friend or family member fishing with them for free from 16 June to 22nd June inclusive.

As with previous TAFF initiatives this year, when the selected venue has been chosen, all that is needed is to cut out or print the rod licence voucher, fill in the person’s details, validate it online at www.takeafriendfishing.co.uk, read the Terms and Conditions, grab tackle, bait and voucher and go fishing! 

The Take A Friend Fishing team welcome feedback on how dads and their families enjoyed their day together. Pictures (including venue name, catch details, captor’s name and daytime telephone number) should be sent to: info@takeafriendfishing.co.uk

To ‘take your dad fishing for free’ between 16 June and 22nd June 2014, download the voucher from: http://www.takeafriendfishing.co.uk/offers/free-rod-licence-voucher/

Rod licences make a fantastic gift for the rest of the fishing season, and they are valid on over 5,000 rivers, lakes and ponds across England. It’s quick and easy to buy a rod licence online or at the Post Office. And kids under 12 can join in the fun for free throughout the year. Details of the various options can be found at: http://www.fishinginfo.co.uk/Home/BuyLicense

There is a very good cross section of fish including most of the carp species, bream tench, perch, roach and rudd. Good baits at this time of the year will include Maggots, Castors, Bread and paste. THE VENUE IS WITHIN A RESIDENTIAL ESTATE - NO NOISE AND DEFINITELY NO LITTER.

 
Ashtead Park, Surrey: We have 2 lakes totalling 4¼ acres at the beginning of Ashtead Park just off the A24 with parking for approximately 12 cars. 

There is a good cross section of tench, perch, roach and rudd with some nice sized Crucian Carp. This fishery has only been open a couple of years and the fish are still on a bait ‘learning curve’. Should you wish to challenge yourself this is definitely the harder of the two venues.

Long Copse venue: MUST be in possession of a landing net, unhooking mat, all hooks MUST be barbless. Groundbait is totally banned as is the use of a keepnet. NO NOISE and NO LITTER.  Dependant on the weather the ground can become quite muddy therefore the use of sensible clothing is advised.
