CARP ANGLING CLUB
Welcome to the Phoenix Heroes Carp Angling page, our fishing club is just one element of our support services and a great way to build a veteran community. Our club gives everyone a sense of belonging again and a chance to enjoy this fantastic sport together. We have some great things planned for our fishing members and we are receiving some fantastic support from organisations to help us on our way.
Even before Phoenix Heroes was founded in 2018 we started to place serving members of the Armed Forces on fishing breaks in France in 2012, through our network we placed a group of soldiers after completing a 6 month tour in Afghanistan on a weeks free fishing trip at Carp France Fisheries; we are really pleased that through Phoenix Heroes we are now doing that on a greater scale.
Carp Angling is just one of our outdoor activities and is proving very popular with our veterans. We now have an established Phoenix Heroes fishing Club and we have gained some fantastic support in this area. Our fishing forecast will cover UK events and commercial fisheries coupled with our overseas trips to France.
Over the last 12 months our Carp Angling Club is attracting memberships on a monthly basis, this club has brought veterans and families together creating a trusted veteran community environment. Throughout, this community has become a very strong "Peer 2 Peer" support group
We are aligned with some fantastic fisheries around the UK, have some loyal supporters and we are bringing veterans together to form communities all around the UK. We also look after the families, we welcome family members to come and join us on fishing days too!

We are now working closely with some stunning venues in France and they have been kind enough to support us on some remarkable discounts for exclusive bookings. We aim to give as many of our veterans the opportunity to have the chance of joining us on our France trips year on year with a good chance that you will land your PB!
The British Disabled Angling Association (BDAA) have been outstanding with their level of support to Phoenix Heroes. It is with our strong partnership that dreams will come true, our projects are underpinned by the support of the BDAA
An absolute amazing organisation!
We are fortunate to have the support of some fantastic sponsors, it is with their support that we are able to organise events and offer discounted rates on bait and equipment for our veterans. The calendar for next year is already booked up and this is a result of our sponsors and the good will of the general public.
Over the last year we have received donations of fishing equipment from members of the general public and our support network. As a result we now find ourselves in a position to provide quality fishing set ups to our veterans, this has allowed us to grow our veterans fishing club.

Throughout the year we try to give everyone a chance to take part in our events that are held on some fantastic venues around the UK. If you belong to a syndicate and you would like to hold an event with Phoenix Heroes then please contact us. We have a mix of beginners and some very good anglers and these type of days are ideal to raise funds, expand our network and get to know like minded people.
Take a look at our forecast
Our fishing projects have been strengthened by the level of support that we are receiving from the general public and well known organisations within the fishing industry. With this kind of support we are able to forecast in advance our fishing trips, family days and enter competitions.

In memory of Fred Steele who sadly passed away in 2019, we will be placing our slate tribute to him in one of the swims at Étang Caché on our next France trip. It was the wish of Fred to donate his Carp Angling equipment to a good cause and we are so pleased that his family selected Phoenix Heroes in support of our Veteran Carp Angling team.
Thank you from all at Phoenix Heroes
We are very proud of our partnership with the BDAA, they are a remarkable charitable organisation!
