SUMMER fishing schools are aiming to reel in newcomers to the waterside, by teaching them the basics of one of the country's most popular sports.

Four free angling coaching events in the north Chelmsford area have been organised by the Environment Agency and local coach Nick Watkins.

Anyone who wants to get into fishing for the first time will have the opportunity to try their hand at angling in the hope that it will spark a passion for a sport that can last a lifetime.

Chief coach, Nick says, "If you've ever wanted to learn to fish but wasn't sure how to start, then why not come along to one of our open day taster sessions and have a go at Britain's biggest participation sport. You will be able to learn to fish in a safe, friendly environment where all the tackle and bait is provided free of charge."

During the day, people will be able to sign up for a free 30 minute coaching session. There will be at least three qualified coaches on hand and all the necessary equipment will be provided.

All the venues have ample parking and toilet facilities and everyone is invited to turn up on the day.

The dates are:

July 12 and August 5 - Newland Hall Fishery, Roxwell, near Chelmsford

July 30 and August 20 - Cuton Lake, Chelmer Village
