Lake at 'Get Hooked on Fishing' angling centre, Witton Park
'Get Hooked' was set up in 2000 by Mick Watson, a policeman in County Durham, who used angling to engage local young people in a rewarding activity that would divert them from anti-social behaviour. By 2004 there were a number of such schemes running in England and Wales, and 'Get Hooked on Fishing Charitable Trust' was formed as an umbrella organisation to co-ordinate and support them. In February 2010, 'Get Hooked on Fishing', a charity and limited company, took over the unincorporated Charitable Trust, retaining the same objects.
"Our aim is to create opportunities for young people - building a brighter future for them, their families and local community. We seek to achieve this by delivering fun and interactive activities centred around the sport of angling."
