A reminder about litter. All of our waters are fishable at the discretion of the land owners. We will not tolerate the leaving of litter, line or and rubbish behind on their land and our waters. People who do so bring our society and anglers generally into disrepute. If we identify any person who leaves any … More Litter.
There appears to be a few of our members, perhaps new members, who are unfamiliar with where our waters start and Glamorgan Anglers finish. The demarkation is “opposite Malley Brook”. We know that this is not an obvious landmark when the trees are in leaf but we do have a sign on a tree at … More Hadnock Road Monmouth.
Our society’s insurers have made it a requirement that we take certain measures to ensure that safe practices are put in place to cope with the covid 19 risk of infection whilst we are fishing.

Treowen. Please note the amendment to rule 44 that is effective from Last Monday, 18th January. This allows 2 rods to be used on Brick Kiln Lake otherwise known as the Carp Lake. The single rod only part of the rule still applies to the other lakes.
Some of us are concerned about the numerous raw sewage discharges into the river Monnow within the town of Monmouth.

It is expected that our society will be taking up the matter with … More The Scandal attached to Some of our Water Companies.
Monmouth and District Angling Society has hardly ever had cause for concern over litter deliberately left on banks, until very recently.
