MAP

The Alliance was formed in the early nineteen seventies to be a voice for Coarse Angling in the Northumbrian region.

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).
