RWGA's vision was to see the Wye returned to its position as the premier salmon river in England & Wales. To see a sustainable river environment where all indigenous flora and fauna can thrive and grow. A river providing employment opportunities for gillies and an environment anglers and other users can share in a fair and equitable manner.
Unfortunately the decline in catches resulted in a loss of river employment and as a result our membership declined to a point we decided to fold and recommend our members join the Wye Salmon Association. WSA goals are very similar to RWGA and we hope that they can continue the work we began many, many years ago.  We commend membership of WSA to all like minded owners, gillies and anglers. Geoff Franks, former Chairman of RWGA has joined the Steering Team of WSA to represent our former membership.

River Wye Gillies - Intensive poultry units and river pollution


A petition to the Welsh Assembly Petitions Committee asking for better controls over the environmental impacts of intensive poultry units. Planners show no signs of recognising the potential impacts of this type of development, despite expressions of concern from many local environmental bodies, and continue to pass planning applications without any real scrutiny. If we can achieve 5000 signatures, the petition will be recommended for debate by the Senedd.

You can help by signing this petition and sharing with friends, members and supporters - anyone with an interest in clean rivers. The petition end date is 22nd May so there is not a great deal of time left.
