of an area-based approach to cormorant

management. Help is available with the

planning, application and co-ordination

Mark gives advice to our members on all freshwater issues pertinent to angling and can inform anglers about the work of the Environment Agency in this area. As well as this, Mark posseses a wealth of information on over predation of fish stocks and fish related disease. Mark also manages the Angling Trust’s Enforcement Team and within this role, oversees our Voluntary Bailiff Service and Building Bridges With Migrant Workers projects.

Saturday 7th & Sunday 8th February:
Danny Williams
Regional Officer for the Angling Trust

Come and talk to Danny about how the Regional Officer for your area can help you, your family, your club or fishery with funding for angling projects or to get more involved in fishing.

Danny will be tying flies on our stand and will be joined by our volunteer Bruno Vincent to illustrate the essential basic skills of Tenkara Tying for beginners and *Kebari flies as well as tips and tricks for the fly tyer.

As part of our development team’s Regional Officer staff, Danny works with key partners and aims to establish an infrastructure to develop the sport of angling within his region. This includes working with national, regional and local angling and non-angling organisations to increase participation, increase club membership and support clubs, increase the numbers of qualified, licensed and active angling coaches and provide more recognition and support for the development of angling.
