Invite to flyfishers

Inspiring England’s next generation of Flyfishers 

The Angling Trust is inviting skilled, passionate and dedicated volunteers to support and inspire the next generation of England’s fly fishermen and women through direct involvement with England Youth Fly Fishing (AT EYF).

Angling Trust England Youth Fly Fishing is undertaking a transitional period following the departure of a number of key volunteers from the youth set up who have contributed significantly to the development and success of English Youth Fly Fishing for so many years. As a result a number of opportunities have arisen to join the AT EYF Committee; roles include Chairperson, Team Coordinator, Team Manager and Team Coach. Volunteers will receive support from the Angling Trust with coaching qualifications and other training opportunities.

Ben Thompson, Angling Trust Senior Competitions Manager said; ”English Youth Fly Fishing has prospered for so many years under the guidance of Chris McLeod and a fantastic team of volunteers. Their departure has left a huge void and they will be difficult to replace but with that comes the opportunity for new people to get involved, the opportunity to carry on the tremendous work of the previous team and ensure a bright future for English Youth Fly Fishing in this country.”

Role descriptions, person specification and adverts can be found on the Angling Trust website and closing date for applications is Friday 31st October 2014. Interviews will be carried out at various locations around the country from week beginning 10th November 2014.

Further information can be obtained through Ben Thompson (Senior Competitions & Talent Development Manager) on 07854 240177.
