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 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.
