What our members think…


As soon as I joined the Angling Trust and Fish Legal, the benefits for a Fishery Owner very soon became apparent. With Fisheries facing new challenges all the time, I believe all Riparian Owners & Fishery Owners cannot afford not to be members.  Having the knowledge that expert advice is a phone call away is a great reassurance.

Graeme Fanner

Fishery owner


I have worked with Fish Legal on two occasions and they were extremely professional and unceasing in pursuing both polluters. If you are involved in a fishery, please support Fish Legal and take out a membership. They are the best conservation and fishery lawyers in the UK!

Roy Hart

Fishery owner, member of the Ilford and District Angling Club


The work you have undertaken on our behalf has been exceptional throughout, for which we are truly grateful.

Who are the Angling Trust & Fish Legal?

The Angling Trust, formed in 2009, is recognised by the Government as the unified representative organisation for all anglers in England and Wales. We are a non-profit organisation working for the benefit of fish and fishing.

We protect marine and freshwater fish stocks and recreational angling in all its forms on behalf of our membership by lobbying and campaigning, by promoting angling participation to all, and for the public good.

We are united in a collaborative relationship with Fish Legal, a membership association which provides expert legal advice and takes legal action to protect the water environment and fishing rights of its member clubs, riparian owners and fisheries and to seek compensation on their behalf for any damage. We are the only sporting representative body to have such a collaboration to protect anglers rights and interests.
