2nd Aquatic Weed Control Workshop

This is an online workshop organised by the IFM in conjunction with the Environment Agency and funded by rod licence income.

The IFM and EA have worked together over the past couple of years to host a series of aquatic weed control workshops. These events are held over a full day and have representatives from angling clubs, associations and fisheries in attendance. With the current restrictions due to the Covid pandemic we are unable to hold an event in the traditional way, so we have decided to take it online instead.

The virtual nature of the event does have it’s benefits as we can open it up to a much wider audience.

The programme has been shortened to fit with online delivery but we will still be covering a number of important areas. The workshop will be held via Zoom and full guidance on how to access the event will be sent to delegates.

We are limiting numbers to 250 participants so register today if you are a fishery owner, run an angling club or fish a water that has weed problems and you want to know more.

Feedback from the first workshop 

I just wanted say how good the workshop was, I learnt loads and all my questions were answered without having to ask them. Brilliant.

Owner of Fly Fishing Yorkshire
I just wanted to say that this was a very informative and well organised meeting. So much information that I will be visiting the recording a few times. 

Please pass on my thanks to all the speakers which were full of facts and information which we as a club will find very beneficial. 
Keep up the good work.
Roy Adams
