Angling Times (UK) - - SOUTH -

WITH the un­cer­tainty sur­round­ing what the EU ref­er­en­dum re­sult will mean for an­glers, there has never been a greater need for in­di­vid­u­als, clubs and fish­eries to join the Angling Trust & Fish Le­gal.

In­creased mem­ber­ship would give us the re­sources and po­lit­i­cal weight of num­bers to speak up for fish­ing through­out the po­lit­i­cal tur­moil that lies ahead.

As the na­tional rep­re­sen­ta­tive and gov­ern­ing body for all an­glers in Eng­land, the Angling Trust has pledged to fight for the best deals pos­si­ble:

Press­ing for ex­ist­ing EU en­vi­ron­men­tal leg­is­la­tion such as the Ma­rine Strat­egy Frame­work Di­rec­tive, Wa­ter Frame­work Di­rec­tive and the Habi­tats Di­rec­tive, all of which are writ­ten into UK law, to be main­tained and im­ple­mented in full to pro­tect fish and their habi­tats.

Press­ing for sen­si­ble regulation of agri­cul­ture, and for sub­si­dies to be linked to the achieve­ment of im­proved out­comes for the wa­ter en­vi­ron­ment.

En­sur­ing any new ar­range­ments for sea fish­eries man­age­ment ben­e­fit both fish stocks and recre­ational sea an­glers.

Read more about our Brexit com­mit­ment in the In­side An­gle blog by Mark Lloyd, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive, on the Angling Trust web­site. WE’VE been run­ning events to help an­glers go fish­ing again af­ter a break from the sport. One of the at­ten­dees got back in touch to say: “The course was re­ally in­for­ma­tive and now I’m ready to go fish­ing again, know­ing I can choose the right tackle. The time and en­ergy you put into the course was amaz­ing – thanks.”

Paul Maslin, who ran the day, was chuffed to get this pos­i­tive feed­back – please rec­om­mend a Get Back Into Angling day to some­one you know who should start fish­ing again!

Find events like this at www. get­fish­ . WE and our part­ners at Get Hooked On Fish­ing and Na­tional Fish­ing Month have listed hun­dreds of fish­ing events across the coun­try on­line via www. get­fish­ .

Many of these events are free and may well be hap­pen­ing on a wa­ter near you this sum­mer.

So why not save your money on day tick­ets and fuel and spend it in your tackle shop on bait and bits in­stead!
