Get Hooked

Junior Fishing Experience. This is an introduction to fishing on the lake at Hatfield Forest for young people aged 6-16.

  • Booking essential

Come along to a taster session and have a go at fishing in Hatfield Forest where our regular fisherman will show you how catch fish and maintain equipment and answer all your questions as they wish to pass on their knowledge and skill and hopefully young people will enjoy the sport as much as they do and 'get hooked'. You will also receive a £5 gift voucher from Stansted Angling to help you get started. Therefore, you have nothing to loss so come along and try out the sport of fishing.
