The National Federation of Anglers says it’s been working hard over the last few months developing a new membership package that offers real tangible benefits to anglers and will be available from Monday 3rd April 2006 for only £22.50.


As a Premium member you will be entitled to go fishing on some of the country’s finest rivers, lakes, ponds and canals for free. As part of the package there are over 35 NFA affiliated clubs participating in our club voucher scheme which offers a complimentary days fishing at locations across the country, this is a major free benefit to anglers.


The new package will be available through participating tackle shops, see for a full list of outlets, or by contacting the NFA via Tel: 0115 9813535 or email


Julian Taylor the NFA’s Angling Development Officer (pictured above) states, “We hope that anglers will see the real benefit of joining the NFA whilst at the same time promoting our member clubs and increase their membership. It is a fantastic opportunity to promote their waters and show anglers the advantages of joining their local club.”


At the same time we have also secured a 10% discount on tackle purchases with over 100 tackle shops nationwide and online retailer Fishtec.


Your nearest tackle shop is an invaluable source of local knowledge on where to go fishing and the methods & bait for that venue. I would advise anyone using one of their vouchers to seek out the nearest tackle shop before going. This should ensure you have a great day on the bank.


“Where else can you get so much value for money within a sport? This has only been possible due to the ongoing commitment and generous support of fishing clubs and the tackle trade across the country”, Julian Taylor, Angling Development Officer.
