Angling Trust

The Angling Trust is the national representative body for game, coarse and sea anglers in England. Members support the campaigns and legal action they carry out to protect fish stocks and programs to increase the number of anglers fishing for fun and in competitions. They are fighting for the future of your fishing, but need support to do more. If you want to protect your fish and fishing, for now and in future join your representative body today.
