National Fishing Month is an Angling Trades Association initiative
Run in partnership with the Angling Trust, Canal & River Trust and funded by the Environment Agency
Angling Trades Association
The Angling Trades Association’s aim is to promote, represent and protect the trade across all three angling disciplines – sea, game, and coarse fishing. In so doing, it strives to achieve not only long-term stability for the sport but, more importantly, ongoing growth and development.
The Environment Agency funds the Angling Trust to provide more opportunities for people to go fishing and encourage sales of fishing rod licences. Money from fishing licence sales is spent on improving fisheries habitat and angling infrastructure through projects like the Angling Improvement Fund.
Angling Trust - Get Fishing
Get Fishing is the Angling Trust’s campaign to get more people fishing more often. It's funded by the Environment Agency from fishing licence income and Sport England to encourage regular participation and diversity in sport.
