View in browser | Latest news from the Angling Trust & Fish Legal DECEMBER 2020 Sea anglers encouraged to apply for Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority vacancies around the country Do you want to play a role in the management of your local inshore fisheries? The Marine Management Organisation is recruiting new members to sit on the 10 Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authorities around the country. Sea anglers with experience, knowledge and expertise of inshore fisheries are being encouraged to apply for the vacancies. Applications close on January 4th. Click here for more information Sad passing of Phil Hyde, dedicated to sea angling It is with deep sadness we share the news that passionate angler Phil Hyde passed away peacefully on 26th November. Phil was an incredibly committed angler who was responsible for bringing distance casting and custom-built rods to the West Country in the 1980s . He dedicated a large part of his life to volunteering in angling, first with the National Federation of Sea Anglers, the Bass Anglers’ Sportfishing Society and later the Angling Trust. Read tribute 2020 bass measures rolled over to 2021 - for now The government has rolled over the 2020 bass fishing measures into 2021 as we wait an outcome from the EU-UK partnership agreement. This means recreational anglers will be required to release any bass caught in January and February and will be limited to two bass per day from March until November. However, this may be amended in spring 2021 to take into account any changes and adjustments after negotiations are carried out with the EU. The Angling Trust will keep you updated over the course of 2021. Take A Friend Fishing - give the gift of fishing this festive season If you are a freshwater angler too, now’s your chance to use your fishing licence to get a FREE one-day licence worth £6 - £12 and introduce a friend or family member to coarse, trout or salmon fishing.

Four-tier coronavirus advice for anglers and clubs Following the introduction of Tier 4 in parts of England, the Angling Trust has updated its dedicated Covid-19 Support Hub to reflect the impact on angling. We've also produced a useful at-a-glance guide to fishing in the four tiers for you to download. Covid-19 Support Hub Information about fishing in Wales can be found on the Fishing In Wales website Specimen Award Scheme - best of the month's catches We received 150 entries from 16 clubs for October which included eight entries from juniors. The best fish for the seniors was Dan Baugh of Teignmouth SAS with a small eyed ray from the shore at Barry, South Wales, which weighed in at 11lb 3oz and gave him a percentage of 223.75% for Area P. For the Juniors, Ciaran Farley from Brixham SAC caught a bull huss of 11lb 10drm from the shore at Berry Head, which gives him a percentage of 157.70% for Area C. The final results for the end of the year will be out at the beginning of January. It will be interesting to see who has won this year’s awards.

    Latest Angling Trust News

    Wow, What a Year! A Review of Our Campaign Highlights Dear Supporter, 2020 has been quite a year. One will we not forget in a hurry. Not only did we have the coronavirus outbreak, which has touched all of our lives in one way or another, we’ve had the looming EU exit to contend with and the continued confusion of deal or no deal. And yet, it has been an incredibly successful year for Angling Trust campaigns. We successfully lobbied the government to get you back fishing through our When We Fish Again campaign, launched our new flagship Anglers Against Pollution campaign to hold polluters to account, achieved our goal of getting recreational sea anglers recognised as legitimate stakeholders in the new Fisheries Act, and so much more. You can take a look at more of the highlights of our 2020 campaigns successes below. Without your support, we would not have been able to achieve the successes we have. On behalf of the campaigns team and the wider Angling Trust I would like to thank you for your support over the last 12 months and wish you a wonderful Christmas and New Year. We are looking forward to continuing the fight for our fish and fishing into 2021 and the years that follow. Sincerely, Stuart Singleton-White, Head of Campaigns When We Fish Again Covid-19 was the biggest story of 2020 and has had devastating consequences for so many of us. But it wasn't all bad news! The Angling Trust were successful in getting you back fishing again, enjoying the sport and the environment that is essential for so many of us and our mental health. Click Here Fisheries Bill The Fisheries Bill is now an Act and thanks to the hardwork of our Head of Marine, David Mitchell, and wider campaigns team, it will recognise recreational sea anglers as a legitimate stakeholder in marine fisheries management and planning going forward. Read More HPMAs Highly Protected Marine Areas (HPMAs) were a huge focal point for sea anglers in 2020 as new Government advice proposed that they should be locked out of selected areas of the UK. We successfully launched our report on the Benyon Review and secured collaborations with Defra into 2021. Read More Anglers Against Pollution The ACA has been campaining against water pollution since 1948. This year we launched a new flagship campaign, Anglers Against Pollution, to take more action with respect to monitoring pollution in our rivers, lakes and coastal waters and to ensure proper and rigorous enforcement against polluters. Sign Our Petition Chalk Streams Chalk streams are one of England's most precious and vulnerable ecosystems. This year we launched the Chalk Streams All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) to lobby MPs to take the urgent action required to safeguard our chalk streams. Learn More Missing Salmon Alliance With the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust and the Atlantic Salmon Trust, we are championing the conservation of Atlantic Salmon here in the UK. Through science, advocacy and action we are working hard to reverse the dramatic declines of these iconic fish. Visit the MSA Website Predation Working with the Avon Roach Project and other partners, the Angling Trust led a campaign to have cormorants added to the general shooting licence, along with jackdaws, magpies and pigeons, so that their numbers could be kept down to sustainable levels.
