To help you get in touch with the right people to support your relevant events and angling development projects, we’ve provided the contact below. We encourage you to pick up the phone or drop us an email and look forward to hearing from you…

Full-time Participation Team:
We have a team of four full-time staff who will work with clubs, fisheries, qualified and Angling Trust licensed coaches, angling organisations, education and health providers, Local Authorities and charities, to support events and programmes which increase participation in freshwater angling and increase sales in rod licences, from all demographics.
