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.

If you want to learn more about the formal objectives of UFA do go to ‘About UFA ’.  In addition the UFA rules lists them — as well as other formal details about the running of UFA.

UFA is currently influencing discussions and decisions on:

  • pollution,
  • water abstraction,
  • access issues,
  • education,
  • catch and release, and
  • poaching.

All these matters affect, directly and indirectly, the health of the river and associated livelihoods and enjoyment.
