 Hi Everyone, Well, where to start ? As has become all too obvious, Due to the Covid 19 Pandemic I.A.A. will not be holding an A.G.M. before the start of the 2021 Angling Season, and with talk of Lockdown's lasting until possibly July, it maybe after the end of the 2021 before we are allowed to congregate in groups of more than 6. With this in mind, the Committee have decided to carry on as we are for the moment. The Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer and all Committee Members will remain in post until the 2020 A.G.M. (Which will be called at the first possible date) Permits for the 2021 Season will be on sale at the Newsagents in the Village of Ingleton from the 15th of March, and will remain the same price as the 2020 Season, also the Rules and Constitution of the Association will remain as for the 2020 Season. All current Members will be invited to the 2020 A.G.M. when a date has been scheduled. 

  The Officers and Committee are acting legitimately under the Constitution and Rules of the I.A,A. which state: "The Committee has the Power to deal with ALL matters that may arise". 

On behalf of my fellow Officers and the Committee, I would like to thank the Membership for their continued support and together we can make it through this difficult period in our Associations history.  

note that both Kingsdale and Chapel-le-Dale are now Catch and Release, and Fly Fishing only, Thankyou.  IC.      

The Twin Rivers, Twiss and Doe, start high up in the fells, as they meander across their respective valleys, Kingsdale for the River Doe and Chapel-Le-Dale For The Twiss, it's hard to imagine the power of the glaciers that carved out these two now quiet and peaceful places.
 With just sheep as company, the curlew and lapwing calling across time, it's an idyllic way to spend a warm spring day or beautiful summer's evening.
     But if that sounds far too lazy and old arm chair, come and take the waterfall challenge, with almost three miles of tumbling cascades, deep rock pools, heady waterfalls and crashing cataracts, Ingleton waterfalls are the real thing for the adventurous, mobile, angler, armed with a trusty six to eight foot, two to four weight, a few flies, scoop net and good strong boots or waders, you'll never have as much fun legally. There are pools up here that have hardly been fished, and brownies that have never seen an artificial fly, think you're hard enough ? Or skilled enough? Come pocket water fishing on the Doe and the Twiss and find out! Oh and don't forget the inflatable vest!
     Below the A65 after the twin rivers have joined under the viaduct to form the River Greta, they have morphed into a wider, slower and more sedate flow, still quick by lowland river standards, but here are long, slow glides, to test the presentation skills of the best dry fly man or woman. Deep rock strewn pools hiding the big returning River Lune brownies, or the shy and wily sea-trout, perhaps as the trout season comes to a close, a mighty King of fish the Atlantic Salmon, if your luck's in.
     It’s fly fishing only and Catch and Releasefrom the top of Beezley Fall on the River Twiss, with the same rule on the River Doe from the top of Thornton Force, but below you can use worms and after the 1st August you can spin. Barbless hooks only, and that's about it.
