NFW 2008 Announced

National Fishing Week 2008 is set to be held between July 19 and 27 and promises to include more game and sea fishing events.

The Angling Trades Association announced this week that 'all encompassing' is the main theme of the popular annual project which aims to lay on numerous angling coaching sessions nationwide to help enourage non-anglers to take up the sport.

ATA chairman Sean O'Driscoll stressed that this year's NFW will seek to cover all angling disciplines and he was also pleased to announce that the Get Hooked on Fishing team will be helping to manage the event.

NFW is now in its fifteenth year and has helped to introduce tens of thousands of people to the sport since its conception.
