‘All encompassing’ is the theme behind this year’s National Fishing Week. That’s the clear message from the organisers as the dates for the festival of fishing were confirmed as 19th – 27th July 2008.

 “We want to embrace all disciplines of the sport, and to this end it was crucial that we secured the help of the Angling Development Board to achieve this”, said Sean O’Driscoll, Chairman of the Angling Trades Association, one of the main sponsors of the event.

 “I am pleased to confirm that the Environment Agency has also shown its willingness to get heavily involved once again, and following on from the great work by Neill Sellers over the past four years I am delighted to welcome the Get Hooked on Fishing team to project manage this years event,” continued Sean.   

Now in its 15th year, National Fishing Week has introduced tens of thousands of newcomers to the sport, and is recognised as critical to the sport’s development and future.
