Club and Fishery Membership

Fish Legal exists to give anglers the legal tools and backing to protect and restore the waters where they fish. With a membership network of 1000+ angling clubs and fisheries throughout the UK, our dedicated team of environmental lawyers specialise in bringing civil actions against polluters and challenging decisions made by government, local authorities and other public bodies that threaten fish and the water environment.

Fish Legal membership is available to angling clubs, riparian and fishery owners in England in addition to membership of the Angling Trust, who are recognised by the Government as the National Governing Body for angling in England.
