Angling Trust

The Angling Trust has responded to feedback from anglers by introducing a new £2.50 monthly subscription option for new and renewing members to support its campaigns to protect fish and fishing and get more people fishing.

 

This new option will help members spread the small cost of supporting angling’s unified representative body and allow even more people to stand up and support the Angling Trust and the vital work of Fish Legal. More members means more political clout and more resources to run campaigns and take action on poaching, pollution, predation and commercial over-fishing at sea.

 

For less than the price of a pint of beer (...or maggots!) each month all anglers will now know they are doing the right thing and supporting their sport’s representative organisation in the same way that birdwatchers join the RSPB or shooters join BASC. What’s more, members get great benefits like public liability insurance worth £14.99, two magazines a year..., monthly e-news and up to 20% off fishing permits, tackle and books.

 

Joining by Direct Debit reduces administration costs and ensures that more of the member’s subscription goes directly to supporting the work of the Angling Trust and Fish Legal.

 

To set up a £2.50 Direct Debit payment just go to www.anglingtrust.net/join or call 0844 77 00 616 (Option 1). For those who prefer to pay in one single payment there’s a one-off £25 option for adult members instead.

Water Companies are going to be forced to reveal what they dump into the waters of the country:

 

http://insideangle.anglingtrust.net/2014/01/17/angling-1-water-company-secrecy-0/

 

MAY be forced to. This ruling in and of itself does not change anything.

 

Let's keep our fingers crossed that when the case is finally bought to a conclusion they are legally obliged to give the information.

 

Of course, then you have to believe what the water companies tell you.

The link above is about the continual flooding that we are having and what is causing it, and how much politicians think that they know best, and an answer to the true reasons.

 

What saddens me on this thread is that so few people have mentioned about joining Angling Trust.

 

The link is there, to take you to Angling Trusts joining page, yet no-one seems to have posted about doing so?

 

I can understand that people will try to be quiet or coy about where they spend there money, but £25 a year to get a voice heard in Government...

 

 

It's not that much surely?

The Angling Trust in the East Midlands is looking to train motivated, experienced anglers as Angling Trust Volunteer Champions to support a national Lets Fish initiative. You don’t need to be an award winning professional angler, just be motivated to help get more anglers on the bank more often. You may already be organising local informal competitions or keen to create more opportunities for people to go fishing

 

James Roche, Regional Development Officer in the East Midlands commented; “Angling like many other sports is heavily reliant on it’s volunteers. As a result the Angling Trust is pleased to announce details of the Volunteer Champion training to recognise existing volunteers and encourage new anglers to give something back to the sport”.

 

The free training will touch on aspects including risk assessment, health and safety, working with disabled anglers & issues involved in facilitating a safe angling session. Upon completion on the training, all participants will receive a free branded clothing bundle including waterproof jacket, cap & polo shirt as well as free Angling Trust membership. All Volunteer Champions will be given the full support of your local Regional Development Officer to plan, organise and promote group angling sessions that are safe, equitable and great fun.

 

 

 

So if you would like to give something back to your sport and help get more people fishing more often, we want to hear from you. Contact Regional Officer James Roche on 07791786251 or at james.roche@anglingtrust.net for more information. There is only a limited number of spaces available so be sure to get in touch as soon as possible.

http://atanglingcoach.wordpress.com/2014/02/17/new-angling-trust-coach-licence/

 

The AT Coach Licence exists for one purpose and that is to help children and young people to participate in the sport in a safe and enjoyable environment.

 

The Licence Scheme runs on a not for profit basis with any payments for the Licence being sent directly to providers of services associated with the scheme. It exists to provide assurances to children, parents, clubs, schools and all angling associations when working with ‘Licensed AT Angling Coaches’.

 

Safeguarding is a very delicate and specific area of work and no other angling organisation receives the support services that we as a National Governing body do, to undertake the safe recruitment of coaches onto the Licensing scheme. It is important also to recognise the skill and knowledge of the safeguarding steering group to support the Licence.

 

To reward and recognise the work that AT Licensed coaches do, we have been working update the scheme and hope you will agree that the new package is much more supportive. With the addition of a number of new benefits including access to Coaching Specialism training, Skills Awards, new branded Licensed Coaches Clothing (this is just a start), we hope to launch a number of other benefits later in the year.

 

We also recognise the valuable work our volunteer coaches do to support the development of angling and as such we are working on a new discounted volunteer coach licence.

 

So how do we decide if we licence coaches?

 

The Angling Trust has a safe recruitment policy and follows this when licensing to assess a coach’s suitability to work safely with children and young people. It includes checking the following:

 

Coaching Qualification – this forms the underpinning skills to ensure coaches are safe in their practice as well as understanding that children are not just small adults and require certain skills to work effectively with them

A DBS – This next provides a background check to ascertain whether they should be allowed to work in a coaching environment with children and young people. Where necessary the AT Safeguarding Steering Group will risk assess an application and make eligibility decisions.

Safeguarding Training – At present we only endorse NSPCC accredited training due to the robust nature of the endorsed training (i.e. Sports Coach UK training)

First Aid Training – To make sure they are able to deal with any unforeseen circumstances.

We would also advocate that any clubs, schools and other organisations working with any coach that they ask for references from new coaches and take these up to check of any other concerns.

 

Failure to meet any of these criteria would result in an application to become licensed being denied. We appreciate many people have excellent skills as anglers and in some cases to be coaches, however for the protection of children we MUST adhere to recognised national standards for all.

2014 Angling Trust Coarse Fish Conference

 

You are invited to attend the

 

Angling Trust Coarse Fish Conference 2014

May 28th 2014

South Street Arts Centre, Reading

 

 

 

This years Coarse fish conference is aimed at coarse anglers, fishing clubs and riparian owners, to provide inspiration and practical guidance to improve coarse fish stocks in rivers and stillwaters.

 

All over the country 'catchment host' groups have been appointed and funded by DEFRA to help bring together stakeholders and begin planning habitat improvements on rivers and lakes at a catchment level. Supported by the Environment Agency, these groups have a key part to play in the restoration of our rivers and stillwaters. This is an exciting time and it's important that angling is at the forefront of this movement, to help ensure that fish stocks and angling interests are a key part of the planning.

 

This Conference will guide anglers, angling clubs and riparian owners in how this new catchment based approach can work and how to get involved. There will be presentations covering "hands on" habitat improvement skills and methods, examples of succesful angling club led projects and guidance on how to create a fishery improvement plan as part of a larger catchment approach.

If you are angler or angling club who loves their waters and want to do everything they can to improve and protect them, then this conference is for you.

Full details of the itinary will appear here when all speakers are confirmed however the outline of the day is below.

A loud voice for angling in the corridors of power

24MAR

This week I was asked how much influence the Angling Trust has in government, and I thought that might make a good subject for my blog.

The Angling Trust was formed five years ago following a merger of six national governing bodies for different disciplines of the sport and other organisations. We have now combined eleven organisations to form a single body to represent all coarse, game and sea anglers. We believe that by joining forces, anglers can have a louder voice to campaign on the many issues that affect our sport. Most politicians don’t know the difference between a spod and a spey cast, but they know that there are more than three million anglers in the country, who can vote them out of a job. By pooling our resources, we can have a much bigger impact and be much more cost effective than eleven separate organisations.

As a result of this merger, angling has never had such a loud voice in government. Our campaigns chief Martin Salter, when he was an MP, set up the All Party Parliamentary Angling Group and we work very closely with the angling MPs on this group to brief them on key issues and to ask them to raise questions in the House of Commons. We have regular meetings with government officials, Ministers and Secretaries of State and occasionally we even make it into Number 10 to meet the Prime Minister. We attend all three of the political party conferences where we host a reception for MPs, party activists and local councillors to make the case for angling to be protected, respected and improved. This initiative alone costs us nearly £10,000 a year – or 400 membership subscriptions.

Richard Benyon MP (until recently the Environment Minister) has accepted our invitation to become an Angling Trust Ambassador and said on his appointment: “I have seen at first hand how effectively the Angling Trust lobbies on behalf of angling and the environment. It is a respected player in the corridors of power because its arguments are evidence-based and coherent. There has never been a more important time for a strong voice for anglers and the rivers, lakes and seas where they fish. It is an honour to be an Ambassador for the Trust.”

However, there is a cautionary notes to add, before you start thinking that the Angling Trust will be able to work political miracles with all this influence. Our political system is incredibly resistant to change; legislation can take many years to jump through all the parliamentary hoops before it becomes law and the government machine only responds rapidly when it is under massive pressure. We have had considerable success over the past 5 years getting small changes to policy and practice which have all been beneficial to angling and fish stocks. If we are to win much bigger battles though, we will need a lot more firepower in the form of cash and members.

This is where you come in. We currently have less than 1% of all anglers in membership. Please join us today, to help us shout even louder in the corridors of power.

Angling Trust

The Angling Trust has responded to feedback from anglers by introducing a new £2.50 monthly subscription option for new and renewing members to support its campaigns to protect fish and fishing and get more people fishing.

 

This new option will help members spread the small cost of supporting angling’s unified representative body and allow even more people to stand up and support the Angling Trust and the vital work of Fish Legal. More members means more political clout and more resources to run campaigns and take action on poaching, pollution, predation and commercial over-fishing at sea.

 

For less than the price of a pint of beer (...or maggots!) each month all anglers will now know they are doing the right thing and supporting their sport’s representative organisation in the same way that birdwatchers join the RSPB or shooters join BASC. What’s more, members get great benefits like public liability insurance worth £14.99, two magazines a year..., monthly e-news and up to 20% off fishing permits, tackle and books.

 

Joining by Direct Debit reduces administration costs and ensures that more of the member’s subscription goes directly to supporting the work of the Angling Trust and Fish Legal.

 

To set up a £2.50 Direct Debit payment just go to www.anglingtrust.net/join or call 0844 77 00 616 (Option 1). For those who prefer to pay in one single payment there’s a one-off £25 option for adult members instead.

Cheers Nick - a bit of a bump too....

Taken from the Angling Trust Website

 

IMPORTANT: Code for Theft of Fishing Rights: 116/11

Quote this code when reporting incidents of Fishing Without Permission to the Police
Read why below...

Fishing without permission is a Schedule 1 Theft Act 1968, and therefore criminal, offence. It is not the Environment Agency's (EA) responsibility to deal with this but that of the police. Understandably, this is not an area of law in which police officers are generally trained, so the Angling Trust are in the early stages of liaising with all 43 forces to educate officers regarding their responsibility. To date, we have concentrated, due to VBS and Operation CLAMPDOWN 2 (OCD2), on forces in SE England, all of which are engaged on joint VBS/EA/police patrols in that region and in support of OCD2. Indeed, a Hampshire Police officer recently checked, purely coincidentally, one of our Area Coordinator's licenses; this was very encouraging, but unfortunately the police's overall understanding remains inconsistent. In an effort to resolve this, last year the Angling Trust uploaded the 'Elementary Guide to Angling Law & Fisheries Enforcement' to the Police Online Knowledge Area (POLKA) - making this simple guide available to every police officer in England. This, however, relies upon an officer searching that database for information, so the upload is not a cure-all. We now, however, have one - and hence why we need your help.

Every offence which the police are duty bound to deal with has a unique Home Office Code. We now have the Code for Theft of Fishing Rights: 116/11. If, therefore, anglers quote this when reporting incidents, the police will understand that they must deal with the matter, rather than misinterpret the situation as a civil matter and/or attempt to pass the job over to the EA. Provision of the Code will mean that from the initial stage the call taker will understand that this is a police matter, and police officers responding can check the relevant instructions.

Finally, and in addition to the good news above, we have had a recent result with the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS). One of our fishery owner members was the victim in such a case of fishing without permission, which the police duly processed, but at court the CPS lawyer completely misunderstood the Theft of Fishing Rights offence and discontinued those proceedings. Acting upon our advice, said member complained to the CPS. Gerry Wareham, the Deputy Chief Crown Prosecutor, recently acknowledged the error, apologised, and instructed all CPS lawyers to proceed with such cases - and if in doubt liaise with Andrew Vaughan, the Lead Prosecutor. This really is a major step forward.
