The Angling Trust was formed from an historic merger of six angling and conservation organisations in January 2009. Since 2009 other angling organisations have merged with us to form a united, single organisation that represents all game, coarse and sea anglers and angling in England.
The Angling Trust aims to protect and improve marine and freshwater fish stocks and recreational angling in all its forms on behalf of its membership by lobbying and campaigning, by promoting angling participation to all, and for the public good.
The Angling Trust aims to involve more people with disabilities, including blind and partially sighted people, in angling. We have a number of dedicated Regional Officers for Anglers with Disabilities who coordinate National Championships each year for disabled anglers.
