Fishery Watch was formed by Adrian Lane in August 2019. It is formed to protect Streams, Rivers, Canals & Fisheries all over the United Kingdom and beyond, if needed.
The idea is to form a nationwide network of dedicated Voluntary Water Keepers, who can patrol and protect these areas from anything that effects angling in anyway, along with the surrounding environment and wildlife.
We have groups established in England, Wales, Scotland & Northern Ireland. All of which are networked through the Internet & via a dedicated secure encrypted mobile live group. This means that our Water Keepers are able to constantly keep in touch with each other and relay intelligence to the whole network, nationwide in an instant.
Fishery Watch is also very dedicated to the issues of Predation, Pollution & Fish Disease, along with tackling Evasive species of all descriptions. If it is a threat to angling and the environment, then Fishery Watch will do it’s best to act in a way that protects the interests of angling & the environment around and within fisheries.
We are an organization with a different approach. We are very outspoken and we do not tolerate anything that means angling is getting a raw deal. If it affects angling, then we will deal with it.
We support all anglers, sea, game, coarse, basically if you fish with rod and line, then we are here for you and to look after your interests, and anything that affects the sport you enjoy.
Fishery Watch is against corruption in any form within angling, we will expose anything that is to the detriment of our beloved sport.
We are different to any other organization in angling, here are some of the reasons that make us different from the rest.
100% Legal and Insured
100% Independent, not funded by or controlled by any official organization.
100% Salary FREE staff, everybody within Fishery Watch is a volunteer & always will be.
100% Dedicated to the promotion of angling.
100% Guarantee that any money that comes into Fishery Watch will go into angling.
100% Committed to teaching the next generation to secure anglings future.
100% Dedicated to teaching the disabled.
100% Committed to providing a safeguarded environment for youngsters & vulnerable adults to learn within.
- 100% committed to promoting angling.
The list could go on forever, we work with a passion, not for MONEY. We always do what is best for angling, not what fills our pockets the most. We will be operating anywhere we are needed by angling.
Fishery Watch is also in the process of registering with the Charity Commision to become an incorporated charity. We will do all of our funding ourselves through fund raising and sponsorship, we will never be controlled by a government department that dictates what we can and cannot do. Fishery Watch ONLY abides by the rules of one organisation, and that is the law of the land, wherever we are operating at the time.
We will be campaigning against Predation and Evasive species. But we will also be doing activities like arranging fishing competitions all over the country and you will be able to enter them, if you are a member of Fishery Watch or not.
Online Training is being setup as we speak, this will take time, but it will be worth waiting for. It will be FREE to members & non members on a variety of subjects related to angling.
