Exciting opportunity! Volunteer
bailiff joins Building Bridges team
as Project Officer
The Angling Trust’s Building Bridges
team has appointed Polish-born
Janusz Kansik as Project Officer to
help educate European anglers about
fishing in this country. Since coming
to England in 2010, Janusz has qualified as a Level 1 Angling Coach and
joined the Voluntary Bailiff Service,
supporting Environment Agency fisheries enforcement officers by regularly patrolling lakes and rivers near
his home in Oxfordshire.
Janusz said: “When I came to this
country a lot of people invested their
time in helping me make my fishing
skills better, which I think was amazing. So I decided I wanted to help others as well and do this by making
coaching videos and through my
work as a volunteer bailiff. My role as
Project Officer provides a unique
opportunity to make an even greater
contribution to the wonderful sport of
angling through education and integration of those who share the passion.
I am very excited at this opportunity to work with likeminded anglers
and bring new, exciting ideas to

and fresh ideas are exactly what we
are looking for. I am sure that his
employment is going to benefit many
anglers and fisheries in this country.”
Two go off to fish…
don’t miss it!
Bristol Rovers v Bristol City Charity Fishing
Match in aid of Children’s Hospice South West
Just a quick email to say thank you for supporting our event with a raffle prize. I
emailed hundreds of companies and organizations, and you were one of the few
who were kind enough to reply and offer something in support of the event, which
is massively appreciated, as I assume you must get lots of requests like this
throughout the year.
The event was a huge success with The Gas Angling Squad (Bristol Rovers)
beating the Bristol City Fishing Team by 409lb 14oz to 195lb 11oz. The real winners
however were The Children’s Hospice South West, for whom we raised £2,787.
So again a massive thanks for supporting us, and hopefully you might be willing
to sponsor the event again the same time next year. n
