Wild Trout Trust Annual Gathering (16th & 17th April 2011)

Monnow Fisheries Association in conjunction with The Wild Trout Trust

The Wild Trout Trust have great plans laid for this year’s annual gathering, to be held on the banks of the Monnow on the English/Welsh border. Saturday 16th April sees a morning of talks on:

  • WTT: What Was & What’s To Come;  Shaun Leonard, WTT
  • EA’s future Landscape; Ian Johnson, EA
  • A Catchment Approach To Wild Trout Management; S. Marsh-Smith, W&UF
  • GWCT’s Trout Stocking Research; Dylan Roberts, GWCT
  • 0+ Trout: The Canaries Of The River; Simon Evans, W&UF
  • Improving The Monnow; Robert Denny, Monnow Fisheries Assoc.

The Saturday afternoon will comprise a guided walk along the river to see the excellent habitat enhancement work of the Monnow Fisheries Association, under the expert eyes of WTT Conservation Officers Paul Gaskell, Tim Jacklin and Andy Thomas.

An informal dinner will be held on the Saturday night at The Park Hotel, Pandy (nr Abergavenny, Monmouthshire), a chance to share a drink and chat fish and fishing. There are also a number of hotels and B&B’s in the area.

For those staying on for day 2, Sunday 17th April will be a chance to fish the Monnow and its tribs, courtesy of the Monnow Fisheries Association (dependent, of course, on river conditions).

The Wild Trout Trust website holds further details of the annual gathering, including booking forms – please do book well in advance! Non-WTT members are also welcome, although after seeing the Trust’s fantastic work, you’ll be bound to join; the cost of which equates to roughly one pint per month!

For more information, or to join the Wild Trout Trust, please see their website by visiting www.wildtrout.org. Likewise, for more information on the wonderful Monnow Fisheries Association, please see their website by visiting www.monnow.org.

The Wild Trout Trust hard at work!
