The Angling Trust is formally launching five new blogs this week covering news and views from angling's national representative body, the pollution fighters at Fish Legal, campaigns, sea and game angling and regional round ups.
The Trust hopes that anglers and our friends in the angling media will find the blogs a useful source of up to date news and information presented in a lively and accessible way.
A further blog on Angling Trust competitions is planned and the five new blogs can be found here:
The Inside Angle - Mark Lloyd's Angling trust and Fish Legal blog
Fighting for Fishing - Martin Salter's Angling Trust Campaigns Blog
Tide Lines - David Mitchell's Angling Trust Sea Fishing Blog
Round the Regions - Reports from the Angling Trust Regions
Chucking Fluff - Angling Trust Gamefishing Blog
Martin Salter, Angling Trust Campaigns Chief said:
"I guess we've been a bit too analogue in the past and somewhat slow to join the blogosphere but we are putting that right from now on. By offering five different blogs from senior figures in the Trust we can cover most bases and give anglers up to date news and views on what is happening in our sport. I really enjoy putting our case out there and encourage all anglers to start following their areas of interest on the new Angling Trust blogs."
Mark Lloyd, Angling Trust Chief Executive said:
"As a membership organisation, we're always looking at ways of keeping in touch with our members so that they have a better idea about how we are working to protect and improve fish stocks and fishing. These blogs are a more personal and informal way of doing that and sharing new ideas, funny snippets and gossip. I hope that anglers find time to read them from time to time to find out what we are doing and thinking."
