|History of fishing tackle
association in China
China Fishing Tackle Association, a branch of China Culture, Education and Sports Products Association, was initially called China Angling Association founded in September of 1983 in the city of Wuxi, Jiangsu Province, South East China. Mr. Jin Liren, then-director of Communication Department of PLA General Political Department was selected the first president.
In March of 1991, Mr. Xiao Peng, then-vice-minister of Agriculture Ministry succeeded the president position.
In June of 1992, proposed by Mr. Wu Shaozu, then-director of the State Sports Committee, China Angling Association was officially taken over by Ministry of Agriculture from the State Sports Committee. Then the committee was responsible only for directing, but not administrating.
Beginning from 1999, State Physical Cultural Administration (In March of 1998, the State Sports Committee changed into State Physical Cultural Administration) wanted to administrate China Angling Association again, requesting the Ministry of Agriculture to transfer the work of the association back to it. But, the Ministry of Agriculture did not agree as it had done lots of work on the association.
Just at that time, State Civil Administration Ministry was working on readjusting and re-regulating social associations, requesting all the social associations to re-register in State Civil Administration Ministry. Meanwhile, the ministry released the ¡°Social Association Registration Regulations¡±, stating that all the social associations, before re-registering in State Civil Administration Ministry, have to get the approval of its supervising administrative department.
Fishing is a kind of sports; and State Physical Cultural Administration is the supervising administrative department of all the activities related to sports. If China Angling Association wanted to re-register in State Civil Administration Ministry, it must get the approval of State Physical Cultural Administration first. As the dispute that China Angling Association is belonging to which and which between State Physical Cultural Administration and the Ministry of Agriculture was not resolved, and the mediation didn¡¯t work, China Angling Association was listed among the 63 national social associations that State Civil Administration Ministry refused to make re-registration for in No. 41 Announcement of the ministry on June 6, 2003. As a result, China Angling Association lost its legal existence in China and had to stop all its activities.
