    Default Barbel Society vs Angling Trust

    Both do a great deal for angling and angling conservation, but with £25 in my back pocket, which one should I join?

    For various reasons (mainly financial) I put of joining the BS, and didn't renew my AT membership this year.

    So given the choice of one, which will I get the most out of?

    Being a member of both, I know specificly where my funds go by being a member of the BS.
    BUT
    For the greater good of angling in general, a successful AT is paramount in my view.

    So your choice.

    To coin a phrase.
    Ask not what your angling organisation can do for you - ask what you can do for your angling organisation !

    Different type of organisations, the Angling Trust is there as the represntative body for Angling in this country.

    And after a Rocky start to life it now seems to be doing the job it was set up to do, representing Angling to Parliment.

    The Barbel Society, Chub Study Group, Osprey, PerchFishers, Tench Fishers, Carp Society, ECHO, NAC, PAC, CCG all have a part to play in the education of anglers and fish care of many species.

    But for my money it's more important to join the Angling Trust.

    Totally agree with this and Bob's conclusion.

    Alas Mr Corker I fear that many will take the same path as you. We will then all be moaning that nobody takes us seriously as we have no representation. Before those of you who loathe the ATr start banging on about their shortcomings, and there are some, without them we really do not have any representation at high level.

    Agree with all the above...

    Angling Trust all the way

    Well you tight ..................!!!!

    With all your disposable income you should be a member of both.

    I am and I'm a poor pensioner.

    I don't have any disposable income. It goes to the tax man so that he can give it to you and the rest of the current generation of pensioners who've never had it so good.

    In that case, just join Angling Trust and help to fight the cause of angling.

    ATr, a necessity, other societies a luxury IMO...

    If we don't have a body to fight for us and win the battles that surely must come, of what use will the various societies be???


    ps I'm a little cross about the snide 'pensioners' remark so I shall have to open another bottle of claret to ease my anger..
