The Angling Trades Association (ATA)

The Angling Trades Association represents angling manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, fisheries, publishers and distributors and is the voice of the UK angling industry.

The Association counts amongst its membership base a majority of the UK’s major angling suppliers, as well as leading retailers, fisheries and publishers.

The ATA’s aim is to promote, represent and protect the trade across all three angling disciplines – sea, game and coarse fishing.

In so doing, it strives to achieve not only long-term stability for the sport but, more importantly, ongoing growth and development.

ATA members continue to donate 1000’s of £’s in cash and product to support national competitions run by the Angling Trust and a myriad of fishing projects, charities like Angling Projects and other good fishing causes.

The ATA is a member of the Sports and Recreational Alliance, the Angling Trust and the Information Commissioners Office.
