The Society is a member of The Angling Trust
The Angling Trust is the representative body for game, coarse and sea anglers in England. Our members support the campaigns and legal action we carry out to protect fish stocks and our programmes to increase the number of anglers fishing for fun and in competitions. We’re fighting for the future of YOUR fishing, but we need YOUR support to do more. If you want to protect your fish and fishing, for now and in future join your representative body today.
NHWAS is also a member of the Colne Valley Fisheries Consultative (CVFC).
The Colne Valley Fisheries Consultative is a membership organisation open to local riparian owners, angling clubs, individual anglers, holders of fishing rights, private and commercial fishery managers, local government and environmental groups and anyone having an interest in aquatic habitats in the Colne Valley catchment.
