Conservation

PADAC is a highly proactive club when it comes to Conversation matters. 

What makes fly-fishing the Ewenny so special is the habitat; it supports an abundant food-chain, crucial for maintaining the healthy, wild fish stocks, and it provides a wonderful, unspoilt environment in which to enjoy the river's bounty. But keeping this quality does involve input from the club.

Several times a year, work-parties are organised to meet, usually on a sunday morning for just a few hours, to perform the few basic regular tasks that keep both the river and the banks in tip-top condition. Those jobs include litter removal, control of invasive species (like pulling up or cutting back Himalayan Balsam), and work to improve the flow of the river and counter excessive erosion.

In their own right, these occasional work parties are something of a social event, enjoyed by all who take part, and are amply rewarded by freshly brewed tea and chocolate biscuits on the river bank, along with plenty of fishy anecdotes! At any one time, PADAC enjoys the support of up to 30% of its membership at these mornings, and it's this enthusiasm that creates and supports the wonderful fishing PADAC has to offer.
