Mr Chris White – Treasurer and Vice Chairman

I started fishing when I was 4 fishing for roach and rudd in the ponds behind our house with one of my dad’s bamboo canes a float made from a seagull feather a bent pin and bread paste. I graduated to river fishing at around age 13 when a 40 mile round trip on my push bike would get me a days fishing on the Dee at Llangollen. I am now 63 which means I have been fishing on and off for 59 years. My tackle may be more expensive but I doubt that I catch more fish! During the last 59 years I never really stopped fishing it is just that I could not always find the time fish due to work and family commitments. At 55 I left my consulting job in London and returned to the North West becoming more involved in my local fishing club (ex Chairman and presently Treasurer) and then the Clwyd & Conwy Rivers Trust. In addition I am secretary for the Conwy Valley Fisheries & Conservation Association which has brought me into conservation work on the Conwy system. I am now retired but I am busier than ever working with the EA on the salmon stocking program on the Conwy and general bank and river maintenance on the waters my club own/lease.
