Individual Membership – Vote for a Fishing Future

The Angling Trust deserves the support of all anglers.”

“I’m a life member, if you love rivers and lakes and the fish we catch, you should be a member too


The Angling Trust has issued a challenge to all the major political parties vying for the votes of Britain’s two million anglers. The Trust calls on the parties to demonstrate their commitment to protecting the environment upon which the sport depends, support policies that protect and promote angling, and maximise the economic and social benefits angling delivers.

The Angling Trust manifesto, entitled ‘Vote for a Fishing Future’, presents 10 specific policy asks aimed at protecting, promoting, and developing angling for all. These policy areas include pollution, regulation, marine conservation, angling access, participation, economic and social benefits of angling, anglers’ rights, reviving salmon stocks, and addressing threats from predation.

The angling manifesto has attracted the support of high-profile figures from the fishing world, including broadcaster and actor Paul Whitehouse who said:

“Get behind the Angling Trust Manifesto. We all need clean water, so for the life of me I can’t understand why we allow our rivers to be polluted, abused, and abstracted. As anglers, we see it first-hand. Enough talk. We need action.”
