The beats are extremely well managed and maintained, and the Association has its own team of contractors carrying out a detailed annual maintenance programme. There is normally angling equipment available for tuition days, with a selection of well attended hosted open days throughout the year which are extremely popular with the members and visiting celebrities.
In order to maintain standards, there is a quality induction programme for new members where they can learn all about the fishing opportunities, fishing etiquette, fish ID etc. This provides a good foundation for new members to become acquainted with other members and the wide range of fishings available.
In an effort to encourage youngsters into the sport not only are the fees for juniors deliberately low but members can also take 2 children under 12 out with them, free of charge.
The Association has strong and positive links with all the local Fishery Boards and Trusts and actively assists in fulfilling their aims and objectives.
