WEST WALES ANGLING PASSPORT - WEST WALES RIVERS TRUST
The West Wales Angling Passport is a cooperation project between Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire.
The rivers of Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire are being restored by rivers trusts (Pembrokeshire RT, Teifi RT and Carmarthenshire RT) so that sustainable angling tourism can take place once again.
The aim of the project is to identify and make ready new and potential fisheries and market them via an existing and well established scheme known as the “Fishing Passport”. The scheme brings in visitors from all over the UK, EU and further afield and links fishing with accommodation providers, pubs and other outlets, thus boosting the rural economy.
The outcomes will include:
- Boosting the rural economy with green tourism:
- Linking with farms and land owners who have fishing rights, providing them with an alternative source of income.
- Linking with accommodation providers and filling accommodation at less popular times of the year
- Linking with local guide/instructors
- Work towards a sustainable, self-funding system
- Advancing WG fisheries policy
