A joint team of representatives of the NFA and NAFAC met with senior management of British Waterways (BW) on Friday 28th October 2005 and agreed a strategy for on-line angling and fisheries, subject to the agreement of BW directors.


The plan will go before the BW Board on 7th November. It contains most of the points that were agreed in the original BW Angling Plan in 2000, but which was never fully implemented, and has been updated to take into account BW’s recent re-organisation.


The strategy is based on the assumption that on-line angling is an important part of BW’s senior management thinking and will concentrate on the development of meaningful communications at a local and national level between BW and angling and fisheries representatives.


The joint team will meet again on 7th December to finally agree the terms of the proposed new strategy.
