The National Federation of Anglers, in conjunction with the fishing tackle industry, is launching an online tackle directory.
After surveying 1,500 tackle shops, over 500 shops said ‘yes’. Each outlet will be displaying a dispenser packed full of NFA Individual Membership forms on their counter, in return for a free listing on the NFA’s web site: www.nfadirect.com
NFA Chief Executive Officer,
Roy Marlow, consultant for Pure Fishing, responded by saying: “It is good to hear that the NFA is moving forward and working together with the industry. To succeed in today’s world any organization needs to look at the big picture and benefits must be for everyone. This is a step in the right direction.”
Sean O’Driscoll, publisher of
Anglers, and potential new customers, can click on to the new tackle directory at: www.nfadirect.com/tackleshops.aspx and users, free of charge, can search the directory by name or town to find a tackle shop in their locality. Tackle shops, with their own Web Sites, are also linked to this comprehensive computer listing that can be downloaded at any time. This will be a huge advantage for anglers on holiday in different parts of the country and want to find a tackle shop close-by to where they intend to fish. Not only can they obtain bait and tackle, but also glean invaluable local information on where to fish, buy day tickets and fill in an NFA individual membership form.
England Team Manager and Sensas agent, Mark Downes said: “It’s great to see the tackle trade and the NFA working together. We’ve got the best fisheries and the best anglers in the world. We all need to pull together and move forward.”
NFA International Events Manager, Dick Clegg OBE, commented: “I fully support anything and everything that helps anglers, the NFA and the tackle industry.”
NFA Individual Membership is £10 per year.
