EFTTA welcomes new members to steadily growing ranks


The body that represents the fishing tackle trade in Europe says that it is continuing to see ‘steady growth’ in its membership.

The European Fishing Tackle Trade Association (EFTTA) has announced the names of companies that have recently signed up, following in the footsteps of recent new recruits Korda Europe and Fairpoint Outdoors.

Among the new members are: Arca, Anglermania, Balász Filament Technologies, Calicó, Carpfood, CMW, Dutch Tackle, Energofish, Gilliam’s Holidays, Mepps, Nays, Next Group, Rippton, Sonik, Stroft Fishing Lines, Tiger, Toppies and Zeck Fishing.

Visdeal and Alle Angeln have also joined EFTTA’s new ‘Internet Player’ membership category, which reflects a growing sector within the industry.

Welcoming the new members, EFTTA Board member Gerard Bakkenes said: “It is very encouraging that the overall awareness of the dangerous situation recreational angling in Europe is on the rise, and companies are registering to join EFTTA to support our common cause.

“Companies are finally understanding that the future of their business depends on our success in Brussels. We are confident that other players in the tackle industry will follow these promising examples.”

To ensure a broader representation – covering all different sectors of the industry – new EFTTA membership categories have been created based on the type of company, location and turnover.

Bakkenes added: “It means that manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, internet players or related companies within the industry have various options to select the membership category that is appropriate to their business.

“Even though the fee for full membership is determined by turnover, the companies applying have the freedom to select the sub-category and referring fee that they consider fair, both for their business and EFTTA.”
