The Angling Trades Association is the voice of the British Angling Industry, aiming to unite the industry, promote and protect our loved sport.

The ATA represents angling manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, fisheries, publishers and distributors.

The Association counts amongst its members 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 many 1000’s of £’s in cash and product to support national competitions and a myriad of fishing projects.

The ATA also promotes angling through its Get Into Fishing, National Fishing Month and

Take a Friend Fishing initiatives.


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