The Federation is responsible for a wide range of angling matters relating to coarse fishing in Ireland with particular focus on introducing the young and old alike to coarse angling, improving coarse angling facilities, coaching & development, protecting our fish stocks and management of international and European teams representing Ireland overseas; we involve everyone regardless of background, gender, religion, age or angling ability.

The NCFFI liaises with various bodies including Inland Fisheries Ireland, DCAL Fisheries, Waterways Ireland, Loughs Agency and various others who are charged with legislation that affects our sport and recreational pastime.

Working alongside tourism bodies to include Failte Ireland, Tourism Ireland and the Northern Ireland Tourist Board we aim to assist in the promotion of angling overseas,  not least in our aim to bring World and European angling events to Ireland and show case our world class angling venues.
