Clubs and Fisheries Resources
The Angling Trust’s Clubs and Fisheries Resources page provides essential information for clubs and fisheries carrying out activities to run their operations safely. All the information is free to download. We have also included a link to the Virtual Fisheries Forum’s “Guide to Health & Safety Requirements for Projects and Working Parties” and the Q&A session that followed.
If your club or fishery is not a member of the Angling Trust and would like to find out more about the benefits of becoming a member – including our industry-leading member club and fishery insurance package – visit our Membership section or call us on 0343 5077 006.
This Clubs & Fisheries Handbook outlines how the Angling Trust can support you through advice, resources, and practical help. Much of our work to support clubs and fisheries is assisted with funding from fishing licence income through our contract delivery with the Environment Agency. However, many other ways we engage with clubs is funded through membership fees paid by clubs, fisheries, organisations, angling trade partners and individuals, including our fight against pollution, over-abstraction, angling bans and other threats to our sport.
The Angling Trust Water Quality Monitoring Network was launched in May 2022 as part of our Anglers Against Pollution campaign to engage anglers and angling clubs in better understanding pollution issues on their waters.
The initial pilot project focused on the River Severn catchment and was rolled out nationally just two months later. It now has the support of over 100 clubs.
The findings from water quality tests taken by club volunteers will help the Angling Trust hold the government to account, ensuring it lives up to its rhetoric on improving our environment and meeting its own legal responsibilities, and support local initiatives to restore our rivers to a healthy state.
The initiative is supported financially by Orvis UK and APTUS Tackle and the “Big Yellow Boxes” are supplied by Flambeau Outdoors. If your club would like to get involved, please contact [email protected]
