Plus updates from key organisations in your area.


    • What problems does Agriculture pose for the health of our rivers ?
    • How do we change farming practices to avoid run off into our rivers
    • Why could Brexit be the key to a huge reduction in the amount of fertilisers, pesticides and silt that is washed into our rivers every year ?

A short film and a presentation from the Angling Trust.

The coarse fish close season debate - let us know your opinion: The Angling Trust John Cheyne leads a debate with all attendees on whether the current Coarse Fish Close Season should be retained. Come along and have your say !

Response to Fracking

forum logo

Some clubs have received letters from an anti fracking compagin group and have asked what is the Angling Trust policy on this.

I have received a copy from Martin Salter of an open letter to the minster of state signed by all the Environmental Governing Bodies on this matter. Which can used to respond to this type of correspondence.
