Get Fishing is the Angling Trust’s campaign to get more people fishing more often. Each year we run hundreds of events for all ages and abilities. They are funded by the Environment Agency from fishing licence income.
Beginner angling events - want to get into fishing? Get back into angling, find out where to go fishing, accessible venues, who to go fishing with, tackle to use to start fishing and how to go fishing for the first time.
The Angling Trust is delighted to announce that leading fishing tackle manufacturer Kevin Nash Group PLC has become our latest Trade Associate partner.
Nash have become a brand name synonymous with quality and innovation in both tackle and bait, particularly amongst carp anglers.
The company’s beginnings date back to 1978 when unable to buy tackle that he needed to adequately protect big carp, Kevin Nash started producing and selling his own design high protection weigh slings and carp sacks. Many more products followed including many of today’s modern items of carp tackle invented originally by Kevin – including oval umbrellas, rod holdalls to carry made up rods complete with reels, rigid frame shelters and more recently the unique speed sensing R3 bite alarm and blockbuster retracting butt Scope short packdown rods. Nash have now been trading for over 40 years and sell to over 30 countries worldwide and along with their Nashbait range of specialist bait they have one of the widest and most well respected product portfolios available to the serious carp angler today.
Alan Blair, Nash Operations Director said:
“With increased participation and public awareness of the benefits of angling, it is essential that we have a national organisation who are driving fishing forward. At Nash we have a clear commitment to invest in the future and are delighted to be working alongside the Angling Trust.”
Jamie Cook, Angling Trust CEO said:
“It’s vitally important that Angling Trust has a close working relationship with all areas of angling and I am delighted that Kevin Nash Group PLC have agreed to become Trade Associates. I have spent a good deal of time talking to the team at Nash over the last few months and it was soon obvious that they share with us a passionate commitment to the environment and getting more people out fishing and enjoying the outdoors. Nash have been driving forward innovation in angling for over four decades and we look forward to working with them for many years to come.”
