Declines in recreational fishing participation, underrepresentation of non-whites among the angling population, and increased urban immigration and sprawl has prompted the development of urban fishing programs. This study sought to develop profiles of anglers living within urban areas located throughout the state of Arkansas. We separated anglers based on the percentage of their fishing effort that was spent within their city of residence. Anglers that predominately fished urban waters were 34% more likely to be non-white than anglers that fished rural waters exclusively.

Although activity-general motivations in the context of recreational fishing have received attention previously, the catch-related aspects of recreational fishing are less well understood. Labeled as consumptive orientation, this article seeks to fill a gap in the literature concerning the measurement of these aspects. Based on a modified version of a scale originally developed by Graefe (1980), the authors performed a confirmatory factor analysis on scale responses from a sample of Texas anglers.

Public attitudes to angling 2010

Angling is a popular activity contributing to the economy of rural areas, and the well-being of society. But how many people in England and Wales are interested in angling? Do teenagers still want to catch real fish ? Over the past decade, annual sales of Environment Agency rod licences for England and Wales have increased by 35 percent, from 1.09 million in 2000/1 to 1.47 million in 2009/10. Does this reflect an increase in the number of anglers or are more anglers buying licences? More importantly, what is the potential to increase the number of anglers and licence sales in the future ?
