Create a better fishery: Book now for the Angling
Trust’s Development Roadshows
The Angling Trust will be running
five development roadshows across
the country to provide tips and guidance to clubs and fisheries wishing
to improve their facilities and deliver
better, safer, more enjoyable angling.
These afternoon events, delivered in
partnership with the Environment
Agency and funded from fishing
licence income, are open to any
angling organisation – big or small –
and are free to attend. So, if you are a
club, fishery, council, charity or
angling project with big ambitions
please come along. And it’s not just
about freshwater angling!
If your main interest is sea angling,
you will find lots of useful information on offer too.
The itinerary will feature talks by
the Institute of Fisheries Management (IFM), English Federation of
Disability Sport (EFDS) and the
Angling Trust. The British Disabled
Angling Association (BDAA) will also
be on hand to answer your questions
on facilities and access for disabled
people. Topics will include:
• Creating an angling development
• Making effective funding
• Creating an inclusive fishery.
• Safeguarding – enjoyable and safe
angling for all.
• Planning and delivering your
improvement project.
• Making the most of your
• Working safely at your fishery.
• Exploiting social media to the full.
The roadshows have been organi s e d b y R i c k Wa r n e r, N a t i o n a l
Angling Strategy Manager for the
Angling Trust, who said: “Feedback
from last year’s grant-writing workshops indicated a considerable
appetite among clubs and fisheries
for this type of training event.
This new series of roadshows,
funded from fishing licence income,
will offer a thorough introduction to
(or helpful refresher on) some key
issues affecting angling development and fishery improvement projects. If you are looking to improve
your fishery or club waters and
attract new anglers, we’d urge you to
attend. We hope to run additional
roadshows in other parts of the
country in 2018.”
The events start at 1pm with lunch
on arrival and will finish by 6pm. For

from the Angling Trust’s Angling Improvement Fund. The work has benefitted from a huge volunteer effort by club
members and, on this occasion, students from Sparsholt College.
