When the conurbation of Tyne and Wear was disbanded, there was a danger of local
waters, which had always been considered as free fisheries, being sold off or leased
to wealthy clubs outside the region.
The Alliance entered into negotiations with Gateshead and Newcastle Councils. Leases
were obtained on two stretches of the Tyne and several ponds located in the Tyneside
area. The Councils of course did not give these waters for nothing. Rents were agreed
and clubs in the area were asked to pay annual fees to meet these rents.
A committee consisting of two delegates from each club, who conduct the business of
the Alliance. The committee meets once a month (meeting dates).
