Who We Are

Watford Angling Coaches (W.A.C.) was formed in 2010 with an aim to not only introduce new people into the sport, but also help existing Anglers to develop their skills and achieve their ambitions.

To achieve our goals, all our coaches are qualified and licenced by the Angling Trust (the sport's governing body), we are also all registered CoachMark Coaches via the Hertfordshire Sports Partnership. 

This gives our clients the assurance that all or coaches are professionals, all hold enhanced DBS disclosures, are trained in Safeguarding & Protecting Children and hold the correct insurances.

What We Do

Fishing Taster sessions
