The voice of angling
Together we are stronger!
The Angling Trust
We are a not for profit organisation, representing anglers, fighting for fish, fishing and the environment.
We are recognised by the Government as the National Governing Body for angling in England and partner with Visit Wales and NRW to promote Fishing in Wales.
We are a member-based organisation made up of anglers of all disciplines providing a united front to represent, grow and protect our sport.

Now that we are back fishing again, we are regularly updating our guidelines to anglers, clubs, fisheries, coaches and other angling organisations to ensure fishing complies with the latest Government guidance during the Covid-19 epidemic.
