New Ambassador Will Millard
says Angling Trust ‘is leading the
way in protecting fishing’
The Angling Trust is
delighted to announce that
Will Millard has agreed to
join our team as an Ambassador. Will, the explorer,
presenter and writer best
known for his BBC Two
series ‘Hunters of the South
Seas’ and ‘My Year With
The Tribe’ joins a long list
of passionate professionals
and angling enthusiasts
determined to contribute to
the wellbeing of fish and
fishing.
Commenting on the role,
Will said: “Now, more than
ever, anglers need to unify
across our sport and take
active responsibility for the
fish we catch and the environment we love.
Becoming a member of
the Angling Trust is giving
direct backing and support
to an organisation of experts that are
absolutely leading the way in protecting and fighting for all our best interests. Fishing has changed my life and
my happiness can be measured by
my proximity to our wild waters, the

Cornwall Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority, which Fish Legal
has threatened with legal action for
deciding against an emergency
byelaw to protect juvenile bass from
commercial fishing nets, says it
rejected the proposal because it did
not believe the bass stock crisis was
‘urgent’. It also says that it “had not
been made directly aware of the landings of undersize bass due to small
nets with a small mesh size”. n
