Salford Friendly Anglers Society

Some days are special, and today certainly is. It's not every day you get a note from the oldest angling society in the world! We received a photo from Mr. Duddy of The Salford Friendly Anglers Society (instituted on the 2nd of April 1817). They are the protectors of the River Irwell, which flows through the Irwell Valley in Lancashire and Greater Manchester, in North West England. I don't know how long our club will exist, but when I read through the history of The Salford Friendly Anglers Society, it makes me think about what kind of club we want to be.

  1. Nothing much, They just sent their old club photo since we had a blog some time ago about old clubs photos. Very nice of them.
