Successful show

Angling Trust Get Quality ‘Buy In’ at Tackle & Gun Show 

Following a successful Tackle and Gun Show, yet more well known fishing tackle brands, including Gardner, Veniard, Shimano Normark, Tronix UK, Nisa Feeders, Reuben Heaton and Fulling Mill, have joined the growing ranks of Angling Trust Trade Members. Existing members already include a variety of tackle shops, manufacturers, publishers and retailers who have pledged their support to help grow the membership, reputation and influence of the Angling Trust as the sport’s national governing and representative body and its work fighting for fishing.

At this year's tackle extravaganza, Angling Trust trade membership administrator and keen coarse match angler Ian Shepherd made sure he found time away from viewing the mouth-watering displays of cutting edge fishing kit to touch-base with the leading lights in the tackle business. By the end of the weekend Ian had received offers of support from over 20 leading firms including Fox, Taska, Richard Wheatley, Maver UK and signed up 10 of these into full Trade Membership of the Angling Trust.

Ian Shepherd said:
'At the Angling Trust we always look forward to attending the Tackle and Gun Show because, as Britain's only shooting and fishing trade show, this is the ideal opportunity for the Trust to catch up with the key-players in the fishing industry and update them on our work to protect fish and fishing. We also get the time to explain how our angling participation and development programmes continue to exceed targets on introducing newcomers to the sport - the next generation of anglers and the tackle trade's future customers.'

Angling Trust Trade membership only costs £30 a year and includes great membership benefits which include free advertising opportunities, a free listing on our online search map at, exposure to our email database, an Angling Trust Trade Member window sticker, membership certificate and posters to show that the member supports its sport’s governing body.

The Angling Trust needs more Trade Members to lend weight to our campaigns and to help us get more people fishing more often.
