Angling is considered as one of the rural tourism activities and is usually included into group of eco- and/or sustainable tourism activities. That is why it could be used as tourism development tool in rural areas but with local community respect. The aim is to reveal the push and pull motivation factors of rural anglers and their perception of conflicts. A self -organized questionnaire survey of members of the Czech Fishing Union in the Třeboň region was used to obtain required data. Descriptive statistic and factor analysis were used for result analysis. Rural anglers built up a diversified community because seven different push motivation factors have been found. There have been also found several types of the potentially important environment settings for anglers. Environment related motivation issues have been identified as the most important. The conflict analysis has revealed mainly the complexity of the environment related motivation issues as well as the complexity of relations between the anglers and other recreational use of water.Keywords:rural areas, development, angling
