THE KENNET VALLEY FISHERY ASSOCIATION

The Kennet Valley Fishery Association, which was originally formed in 1922, was reformed in 1973. Its principle objective is to represent and act for the membership in protecting the Rivers Kennet, Pang and their tributaries, which have long been renowned for the quality of their fisheries.

Membership includes riparian owners, angling clubs and associations, and individual anglers, and is drawn from the whole of the main Kennet from above Marlborough down to Reading, together with the Lambourn and other tributaries, and the Pang.
