The Angling Trust is delighted to announce that leisure and tackle retailers GO Outdoors and Fishing Republic have become our latest Retail Associate members.

The partnership will see GO Outdoors and Fishing Republic support the Trust’s work, especially our campaigns to protect rivers and coastal waters from pollution and initiatives to get more people into fishing.

Marie Stewart, Partnership Accounts Manager at JD Outdoor, said:

“We are delighted to be partnered with the Angling Trust. We aim to support the Trust in any way we can so that they continue to carry out the invaluable work they do for the angling industry and anglers across the country. We are particularly keen to back both their Anglers Against Pollution campaign and their work to introduce more people to fishing, especially at a time when protection of the environment is more important than ever.”

Fishing Republic have 21 outlets inside GO Outdoors stores across the country, with plans to install a further 30 outlets next year. They also have three standalone stores in Birmingham, Barnsley and Crewe.

With a purpose “to inspire and equip everyone for life outdoors”, GO Outdoors stock a huge range of great value items for walkers, campers and anglers in its stores and online.

John Cheyne, Angling Trust’s Head of Marketing, Communications & Membership, said:

“GO Outdoors stores are a ‘destination’ shopping experience that almost every family in the country will visit at one time or another. The fact that they are expanding their angling offering is brilliant news for our sport and is another example of how fishing is growing in popularity and is reaching a new audience who are keen to experience and engage with our natural environment. We are delighted to welcome GO Outdoors and Fishing Republic on board as Angling Trust members and look forward to working with them in the future.”

Very litte fly gear in any Fishing Republic shop, much like Angling Direct.
That's just what I was thinking; they didn't even have a spool of fly line backing in stock when I went to my local Fishing Republic warehouse earlier this year. Just a handful of disparate odds and ends of fly tackle that looked to me more like 'one off' stock clearance items than a regularly stocked range of products.

They really should have kept Yorkshire Game Angling separate to Fishing Republic in my opinion, all immaterial now.
