We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

National angling advisory group

We want to secure and conserve our fisheries and make sure they are suitable and well used by the many people who want to fish them.

We benefit greatly from the support of an expert Angling and Fisheries Advisory Group, which comprises a small number of skilled and experienced practitioners.

The group helps the Trust chart a course through angling and fisheries management issues, especially those that may be innovative or controversial, to ensure fisheries and angling is appropriate, well managed, and reflects the charitable objectives of the Trust.

The group’s chair is David Kent, director of Angling Trust.
