Dales rivers and canals provide ample opportunities for

With over 2,200-miles of canals and rivers, British Waterways is encouraging angling amateurs and enthusiasts alike to grab a rod and get fishing.

Whether a beginner trying their hand for the first time, or an experienced angler taking part in national matches, the Yorkshire Dales - with the Leeds and Liverpool canal and its many rivers - can provide plenty of opportunities for anglers to relax, soak in the waterway atmosphere and take part in the sport.

Laurence Morgan, General Manager for British Waterways in Yorkshire, says: "Angling is becoming more popular and National Fishing Week is a great way of giving local people a 'taste' for angling.

"Our local events which take place confirm our commitment to local angling initiatives. They are a great way for visitors to go out fishing on the canals, involve the local community and promote safe angling practices. It means our events and schemes are successful in allowing people to access, interact and be educated through our waterways".
