About Angling Trust
The Angling trust is the National Governing Body for Angling.
The Angling Trust is the new, single organisation to represent all game, coarse and sea anglers and angling in England. We lobby government, campaign on environmental and angling issues and run national and international competitions. We fight pollution, commercial over-fishing at sea, over-abstraction, poaching, unlawful navigation, local bans and a host of other threats to angling.
As the governing body for all angling, the Angling Trust seeks government funding to develop the sport from grass roots participation through to elite performance. We develop programmes with clubs to increase participation, particularly amongst groups who have yet to discover the joys of going fishing. We protect the rights of all anglers to do what they love most. The Angling Trust has been formed from an historic merger of six angling and conservation organisations in January 2009. The Angling Development Board merged with the Angling Trust in 2012.
