The Forward Assist Angling Academy includes members whose angling abilities range from beginner, to those with prior match fishing experience who want to improve their skills. All the angling equipment and tuition is provided to the participants at no cost and with the full support of Dave Munt, North East Regional Officer for the Angling Development Trust.

Fishing trips, both one day and multi-day excursions are provided at a variety of venues across the North East and abroad. The Veterans Angling Academy is unique in that it provides sea, course or fly fishing activity throughout the year dependant upon the weather..
