Title: National angling survey 1994
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
This report has highlighted the fact that a number of anglers, particularly casual ones, still avoid buying a licence. This not only makes the licence more expensive for everyone else, but deprives the sport of funds which are vital for continued improvement. The principal objectives of the 1994 survey were: to establish the numbers and demographic characteristics of different types of angler; to make comparisons with earlier surveys; to examine angling habits, i.e. how often anglers fish, where they fish and what they prefer to catch; to identify how much anglers spend; and to examine attitudes towards a requirement to display rod licences when fishing.
