Go Fishing NI takes up the ANLRS
banner in Northern Ireland
The Anglers National Line Recycling
Scheme (ANLRS) is delighted to
announce that Go Fishing NI will be
acting as co-ordinators for the
scheme in Northern Ireland as of May
Go Fishing NI is a non-profit organisation that was set up in 2016 to promote all aspects of angling in Northern Ireland. Their hardworking team
consists entirely of volunteers, who
have a passion for angling and who
give up their time to work with fisheries, clubs, tackle shops and other
organisations and businesses, helping
them promote the great work they are
doing that supports and develops
angling in N. Ireland. Through their
monthly angling magazine, Go Fishing NI Magazine, all disciplines of
Northern Irish angling are reported
on, as well as angling a little further
The organisation will promote the
ANLRS across Northern Ireland
through its magazine and social
media platforms and act as the point
of registration for any fisheries, tackle
shops or angling clubs that want to
become recycling locations. The
group will be seeking funding from
local sources to enable them to supply businesses that register with an
ANLRS line recycling bin.
Once the line has been collected,
Go Fishing NI will act as a central collection point for the mono, braid and
fly lines from where they will send it
direct to the UK based recycler, The
Maltings Organic Treatment Ltd.
Go Fishing NI has signed up to the
ANLRS participation charter that
details how any co-ordinator group
must take the scheme forward there
and continue the ethos in which the
ANLRS was set up. In brief, this is to
run a transparent nonprofit, volunteer
lead, donation funded scheme that is
run by anglers for anglers.
Darren Walker, founder of Go Fishing NI, commented: “I am delighted
that Go Fishing NI will be part of such
a wonderful and worthy scheme.
Whatever our relationship is with
angling, we have a responsibility to
ensure its future by looking after the
environment we fish in. Playing an
active role in the Anglers National
Line Recycling Scheme will help to
ensure we look after our waterways
for generations to come.”
Viv Shears of the ANLRS added:
“The growth of the scheme in the UK
has been phenomenal since it was
launched early last year. To increase
the availability of recycling locations
in Northern Ireland is fantastic, and
when Darren approached us offering
their support, it was an obvious
extension to the scheme. A local focus
within a region or country with proactive volunteers like those at Go Fishing NI can only be a positive for line
recycling in general.” n
