Wildlife & Environment Support

Taw Fishing Club strongly supports the work of both public (Environment Agency) and private bodies including the Wild Trout Trust, River Taw Fisheries Association, Salmon & Trout Conservation Society in their efforts to maintain and improve the quality of the natural environment on our rivers, lakes and coastal waters.

A number of TFC members are active participants in the RiverFly Partnership ( supported locally by the Devon Wildlife Trust and the North Devon Biosphere. The Riverfly programme tracks water quality through a network of volunteers who sample the invertebrate populations of registered sites on the waterways on a monthly basis. 

With the assistance of the Environment Agency and the West Country Rivers Trust, the TFC has invested significant club funds in continued river improvement activities using the "Fishing Improvement Programme".                                                                                                                                     © gmurray 2018
