New National Angling Strategy aims to broaden angling’s appeal
A new National Angling Strategy (2019-2024) has been launched to encourage wider participation in the sport by focusing on fresh audiences and the health and well-being benefits that angling can bring!
The strategy was written by Adam Brown, Head of Research at Substance, after widespread research and consultation with the angling community and using feedback from the National Angling Survey 2018 which engaged 35,000 anglers. The responses highlighted the need to make better information available on where and how to fish and the need to emphasise the health, well-being and environmental benefits of participation in recreational fishing.
