The River Forth Anglers Association was formed by anglers in 2000.
Itís focus was to best represent the interests of anglers who fish the
Stirling Councilís water on the Forth above the confluence with the River
Allan upstream to the confluence with the River Teith. Membership costs £10
This representation takes many forms including direct negotiation with Stirling
Council Officials to improve conditions and facilities on the beat. As a result of
direct pressure by
the Association we now have a cabin where members and friends can meet and have
a coffee before and after their day on the river , or just to look in for
A chat and catch up with recent events and results. We have also influenced the
retention during the netting season of worm fishing for those who enjoy indulging
in that skilful part of the sport.
Facilities for Disabled Anglers have recently been increased by the construction
of a new platform with wheelchair access situated at the Dhu Craig just downstream of
The car park and cabin area. This complements the platform which exists above the
Goose Wood where Disabled Anglers can drive to within 20 yards of the platform.
Walkways and seats have been provided at strategic points along the river.
We also have had until recently an unbroken period of service within the Forth District
Salmon Fishery Board and are currently in discussion with that body regarding fresh
elections for angling representative co-optees.
We are also discussing the delivery of conservation projects by the board, a matter
which is currently involving direct communication between the Forth Angler's
Secretary and the board chairman , which is a major step forward in our development.
