About Afan Valley Angling & Conservation Club

The Afan Valley Angling Club was founded in 1951 and offers a mix of Wild Brown Trout, Sewin and Salmon fishing on a small spate river.

The club is managed by a conservation-minded but progressive committee that has helped the river to recover from the ravages of the industrial age and coal era to the point that the river is bucking the trend with an ever-increasing salmon population. “Rising high in the mountains of Glamorganshire, the River Afan Flows through the once heavily industrialized Afan Valley before entering Swansea bay at Port Talbot. 

Its history from 1147 to the present day is as turbulent as the river itself. Like all rivers in the South Wales valleys, it suffered the ravages of the industrial revolution, but has emerged today as a symbol of what can be achieved by a small band of dedicated men, unwilling to accept the legacy of the past and who were determined to restore their heritage”. – Ivor Lewis, author of The Afan fisheries.
