2014 Angling Trust Coarse Fish Conference


You are invited to attend the Angling Trust Coarse Fish Conference 2014 on May 28th 2014 at the South Street Arts Centre, Reading

Angling Trust Coarse Fish Conference 2014This 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.
