Angling Trust Celebrates its 1,500th Member Organisation


This week, the Barbel Society was the 1,500th angling organisation to join the Angling Trust. Since its formation less than three years ago the Trust has grown to represent more than 350,000 anglers, these clubs and river associations are a powerful political force to support the Trust's campaigns to protect marine and freshwater fish stocks and anglers' rights, and are one of the largest networks of clubs and associations of any sport. They range from Abbey Cross Angling Society to Zeal Monachorum Fishing Club and from recently-formed syndicates of 10 members to 10,000-strong clubs with more than a century of history behind them.

Steve Pope, Chairman of the Barbel Society said " The Barbel Society has been watching with interest the development of the Angling Trust since they formed two years ago. Following its recent successes fighting pollution, fish theft, predation by cormorants and getting £100 million Government funding to improve the UK's rivers we decided the time was right to join up and support their work which will benefit barbel angling and therefore our own members. "

The Barbel Society are the 1,500th angling organisation to join the Angling Trust

Clubs like the Barbel Society pay a subscription of between £50 and over £600, depending on their size, to become part of angling's unified representative body. They receive highly preferential rates for specialised civil liability insurance which is essential in the modern world. They also benefit from advice sheets on a wide range of subjects, a free (optional) listing on the Angling Trust's find a club web page, and (for the 900 clubs who have opted to join Fish Legal) free legal action if their waters are polluted or damaged.

The Trust will be introducing new benefits for member clubs in the coming months. Individual membership of the Trust, which costs just £25 a year, is also increasing and has reached 14,335.

Angling Trust Membership Manager Will Smith is determined to increase this number further and said: " All serious anglers should join the Angling Trust as individual members to support the work we do fighting pollution, tackling cormorant predation and representing anglers. Individual members provide the resources and the political clout to enable us to do more for the benefit of all anglers. As a member of the Barbel Society myself, I'm delighted that they have joined, but I'm also an individual member of the Trust. "

Pete Reading, Secretary and Research & Conservation Chairman of the Barbel Society said " I am delighted that the Society has now given full support to the work of the Angling Trust. The Research and Conservation work of the Barbel Society shares the common aims of the work of the Trust, and we look forward to working together to protect and improve the quality of our riverine environment. "

Mark Lloyd, Angling Trust Chief Executive said " The Angling Trust is delighted to welcome the Barbel Society as new members of the Trust. Specialist and single species anglers are particularly passionate about their fishing and this is reflected in the growing number of them who are supporting our work to protect and promote fish and fishing. We recognise the fantastic work that the Barbel Society does to protect and increase understanding of the barbel and its natural environment. "
