Westcountry Rivers Trust's - Angling 2000 scheme

This initiative was started in response to the Trust discovering a considerable undeveloped fishery on many farms within Cornwall and Devon. By facilitating the development of this resource, the Trust aims to provide farmers and riparian owners with an economic incentive to protect and enhance the rivers and streams of the Westcountry.

The scheme operates via a simple token system. Tokens can be purchased to fish any of the beats participating in the scheme and come in two parts. The first part is posted in a marked letterbox, located adjacent to a designated parking place, at the start of the day's fishing. The second part is a catch return to be posted in the same letterbox at the end of the day's fishing. Beats are rated according to their quality, ease of fishing and species of fish present.

All proceeds of the scheme are returned to the riparian owners to support improved river management initiatives.
