Join today, catch tomorrow


Lucy joined Allen Valley Angling & Conservation towards the end of September - just before the end of the brown trout season on the River East Allen. She is pictured here with her first ever fish - a beautiful little brown trout measuring about 10 inches - which she caught on a dry, sedge-type fly on Sunday 25th September. The photograph was taken by her proud father Peter and captures perfectly what our new fishing club is all about. I just love how carefully she's holding up her fish and her expression is one that I recognise very well - it doesn't matter if it's your first fish or your 1000th, the feeling you get is the same and is written all over Lucy's little face.

Well done Lucy!
