Sea angling welcomes freshwater initiative

NFSA News Release

The move by the four main UK freshwater recreational angling organisations to work together to create a single body representing their interests is strongly welcomed by the National Federation of Sea Anglers (NFSA).

The NFSA has been involved in the early stages of the discussions but following a cut in funding from Sport England earlier this year is currently introducing a new subscription structure to ensure financial viability.

By spring next year our financial position will be clear and we will formally consider joining the new body after consulting our membership.

During the intervening period the NFSA representing sea angling interests, intends to work closely with the new body.

In the meantime the NFSA is seeking closer co-operation between the various specialist sea angling organisations and will continue to concentrate on RSA issues, particularly the critical need to conserve and rebuild fishstocks.
