15,000, is that the membership now Nick? I haven't seen any recent figures, they don't seem keen on publishing them. If I remember right, they wanted about 10,000 after the first year! That should have told them something they didn't want to hear.
Quite a few of us on here saw the writing on the wall when they first started, (is it 5 years now?), but sadly it wasn't the same around the angling world, I still meet up with anglers who have no idea that the ATr exists, never mind what it stands for! Mind you, I'm not sure the ATr knows what it stands for either.
John, judging from their accounts for 2014, it looks as if the figure could actually be lower than that....it's difficult to tell without a release of numbers...they keep that under their hat. Judging by some of the comments on their Facebook page, they may well have a few less because of this bass debacle!
