The Angling Trades Association (ATA)

The Angling Trades Association represents angling manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, fisheries, publishers and distributors and is the Voice of the British Angling Industry.

Incorporated in 1973, and celebrating its 41st year, the ATA remains the only trade body representing the angling industry.

The Association counts amongst its membership base a majority of the UK's major angling suppliers, as well as leading retailers, coarse 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, growth and development.
