The Anglers National Line Recycling Scheme (ANLRS) is delighted to announce that WSB Tackle, a long-established independent tackle wholesaler based in Cornwall, has become a corporate sponsor of the scheme recently. WSB wholesale a wide range of tackle from sea coarse and game angling to many outlets around the country. 

Viv Shears, co-founder of the ANLRS, commented “The team at WSB have been very keen to support what we are doing within angling and, with their help, more tackle shops and anglers will get involved. The more bins available for anglers the more line we can prevent going to landfill or being left in the environment where it can cause issues with wildlife. As a volunteer lead, non-profit group, the support of the tackle industry is essential to help us encourage all anglers to start recycling rather than binning their lines.  Let’s hope that WSB Tackle is one of many to step forward and support the scheme over the coming months.” 

Along with their kind annual donation WSB have purchased several bins and will be offering them free of charge to their shop customers. These bins will carry the ANLRS stickers along with ones from WSB. They have agreed to be a collection point for their local tackle shops to drop off their line and WSB will arrange for it to be sent off for recycling.

Mario Massimino, General Manager of WSB Tackle, said “We are extremely proud to be Corporate Sponsors of the Anglers National Line Recycling Scheme. Stopping fishing line and its plastic carriers ending up in landfill and turning it into something useful must be the way forward.  We are handing out recycling bins at our local tackle shops, fisheries and commercial charter boats. The response we are getting from our customers has been fantastic with lots of requests to get on board!”
