Please follow the lockdown rules - message from CEO Jamie Cook


"I want to thank anglers for fishing responsibly during this lockdown. It is clear from the messages we have received that, despite the restrictions, thousands of anglers are adhering to the guidance and still enjoying their fishing.  It is absolutely vital that anglers continue to fish safely, locally and responsibly throughout this pandemic.” - Jamie Cook, CEO, Angling Trust & Fish Legal

The Angling Trust has produced a series of documents to assist anglers, clubs and fisheries during the current pandemic lockdown in England.  These free advice guides are ideal to download and store on your phone. You can also find more information on the Angling Trust's dedicated Covid-19 Support Hub.

Information about fishing in Wales can be found on the Fishing In Wales website


Show your support... buy a branded shirt

Show your support for our Anglers Against Pollution campaign and  raise much needed funds to help the fight  by buying our branded clothing. Cotton processing and dyeing causes pollution in many countries, so we have worked hard to find a manufacturer whose supply chain ensures that our shirts and hoodies don't damage the environment. Our shirts cost a little more than the bargain outlets on the high street, but you will know that you are actively helping to keep our rivers, lakes and oceans clean and pollution free.
