13Welcome to S.A.P.A Slamannan     Slamannan A.C. Club was started by a small group of local anglers in 1933 and has been in existence from then throughout the war years.  They have fished the upper reaches of the River Avon. Industries such as paper mills and open cast mining have taken their toll on the river and its wildlife.

In 1976, the Avon was dug out and canalised. Gravel beds were removed, boulders taken out, bends were filled in and the river course was straightened out. Pools were none-existent. This almost destroyed the habitat for fish, birds, invertebrate, water voles and otters.

Point to a photo above for more info.

Could all members keep an eye out for poachers on the Avon they are bragging about catching Salmon on their face book and posting pictures of Brown trout which are out of season we think it is happening above and below the Aqueduct in Muiravonside country park if you see anything suspicious then call warranted bailiff David Graham on 07823448917 or me George Mackintosh on 01324715735 remember anyone fishing on a Sunday is fishing illegally.
