In Person

Permit Outlets

A number of businesses in the Tyne Valley have kindly agreed to sell the fishing permits. Most of these outlets are open at the weekend and so you should always be able to get hold of some tickets. These outlets support Allen Valley Angling & Conservation (AVAC) at their own cost, so please make sure you stop for a pint, a bite to eat or stock up on goodies for your packed lunch and tackle so that they can continue to help anglers gain access to the AVAC fisheries.

Catch Returns


It is a requirement of using the permit scheme that you submit a catch return to the outlet you purchased the permit from. It is essential for monitoring the health of the river and provides useful information for other anglers.


All anglers returning a form will be entered in to a free prize draw, which will be drawn at the AGM and announced on this website.

There is a simple catch return form on the back of your permit. Alternatively, you can download a form below and email to
