Hayley Clapperton, Managing Director of Bait-Tech Ltd and all-round angling supporter has been announced as the Angling Trust's latest Ambassador.

Hayley - an advocate for encouraging children and families to try fishing - has made it her mission to learn everything she can about angling and the people who take part. She often volunteers her time and support at events for newcomers and has joined the Trust’s Fisheries Enforcement Support Service as one of its ever-growing team of Volunteer Bailiffs.

Hayley explained her decision to accept the role of Ambassador: “I’ve always supported and assisted the work of the Angling Trust. They are the sport’s governing body and I doubt there’s an organisation that could do a better job.

"Their work is hugely varied, more so than most anglers realise, and they need to be recognised for that. I’ve liaised and worked with many of the staff and they are all passionate about what they do, without them, angling would be a in very different environment.”

Hayley helps people learn to fish at Get Fishing events across the country. She explained: “For me it’s all about giving something back to the industry I’ve come to love, so being asked to become an Ambassador for the Angling Trust is very humbling - it didn’t take me long to think about it!”

Clive Copeland, Head of Participation said: “Hayley is a true ambassador for angling. Without doubt, her commitment to encouraging people to try angling and to get more people fishing more often will be a great asset.

"The Participation Team welcome Hayley’s ability to raise the sport’s profile so that everyone can discover the wonders of angling, its proven contribution for fitness, mental health and wellbeing.”
