Fishing on the river Usk
UFA is an independent association representing riparian owners, clubs, associations, organisations and everyone interested in the conservation of the river environment and fishing on the river Usk and its tributaries.
About the UFA
Welcome to the Usk Fishing Association (UFA) website! In the past UFA was known as the United Usk Fishermen’s Association.
It has been actively involved in all of the important issues relating to the river Usk and its tributaries, such as buying out salmon nets and successfully fighting against an Usk barrage.
UFA is currently influencing discussions and decisions on:
- water abstraction,
- access issues,
- catch and release, and
All these matters affect, directly and indirectly, the health of the river and associated livelihoods and enjoyment.
