Angling Trust funding for fishery improvements available

The Angling Trust has launched launched a new Fishery Improvement Fund’. The funding comes from the Environment Agency from some of the proceeds of rod licence sales.

The £65,000 Fund will make awards of up to £5,000 to eligible organisations for buying equipment, to make habitat improvements or for projects that get people fishing and support the aims of the National Angling Strategy Fishing for Life’.

Deadlines are tight so ideally clubs should already have a project lined up.
Applications must be posted or emailed to reach the Angling Trust by Tuesday 17th February 2015, and successful organisations must be able to spend the award by no later than the end of March.

Importantly, applications to the Fund from commercial fisheries are welcome and clubs and organisations do not need to be members or Angling Trust affiliated to apply.
