Call for Youths to learn fishing with the Dublin Angling Initiative


Dublin Angling Initiative, an education and outreach programme run by Inland Fisheries Ireland, is launching its programme for 2021. The initiative is calling on youth clubs, community groups and schools in the Greater Dublin Area to take part in it’s fishing programme. The Dublin Angling Initiative aims to promote, develop and improve angling among children and young people. In 2021 IFI are looking for interested parties for the Summer, Autumn and Winter months to take part in the programme.

In 2019, over 400 children and young people took part in the fishing programme which caters for anyone interested in angling, from the complete novice to the more advanced angler with exposure given to each of the different types of fishing. The initiative offers children and young people an opportunity to take fishing lessons, participate in fishing trips and enjoy family fishing days.

In addition to practical fishing exercises, we also offer fishing presentations and tours providing an insight into fish, their habitat, conservation measures and education regarding local fishing areas. Inland Fisheries Ireland’s Dublin Angling Initiative has seen thousands of young people participate over the past 20 years resulting in the establishment of many new fishing clubs.

The 2021 Dublin Angling Initiative will include coarse, sea and game angling along with educational trips, where Covid-19 public health guidelines allow.
