The Upper Avon Angling Association committee have decided that there will be NO FISHING on any Upper Avon Angling Association Controlled water including Glengavel Reservoir, the Glengavel Water and The Avon Water.

This will be reviewed in 3 weeks or if Government advice changes sooner.
Please follow the Government advice to stay home and only travel is it is absolutely necessary to do so.

The health and wellbeing of our members, families and community of Avondale is of paramount importance to The Association and we thank you for your cooperation at this difficult and unpredictable time. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate in contacting us.
