Leading fisheries organisation NAFAC, the National Association of Fisheries and Angling Consultatives, has announced an opportunity for anglers and angling clubs who are not yet members of the forward thinking body, to find out more about its facilities.

This year, the Annual General Meeting will again be held in conjunction with the well-liked Thames Fisheries Consultative Council Fisheries Seminar. This annual event regularly attracts over 100 anglers and proves an ever popular and informative experience with distinguished speakers from the angling and fisheries world. This year’s seminar will range from talks on River and Canal Restoration, the Effects of a New Reservoir  to Angling Historian, John Essex, on “British Angling Baits through the Ages” and the Annual Debate, featuring Mr Crabtree and son Peter, this year intriguingly titled “Modern Carp Fishing – The Saviour of our fisheries or the road to their demise?”

Anyone attending the seminar can attend the NAFAC AGM free of charge. NAFAC members attending the seminar are welcome to stay for the Seminar on purchase of a Seminar ticket which can be obtained at a £2 discount from NAFAC HQ.

The event is to be held at Oxford University, Wheatley Campus close to Junction 8A of the M40 on Saturday 17th February. The Seminar runs from 9.30 am to 3.45 pm with the NAFAC AGM from 12.20 to 1pm. Tickets include Coffee and Buffet Lunch and cost £12 from John Ellis, who can be contacted on 01525 381280.

The National Association of Fisheries and Angling Consultatives (NAFAC) is the national body of local and regional fisheries and angling consultatives (stakeholder groups) that together represent the views of over 400,000 anglers and others with an interest in our fisheries.
