General Queries/Info:


Alan Winstone – Trustee and Chairman

 I was born in Somerset but have spent most of my working life living in various parts of Wales and now live in beautiful Anglesey. I have recently retired after 35 years working as a Fisheries Scientist and Environment Manager with Natural Resources Wales and its predecessor organisations. During this time I have witnessed big changes in the aquatic environment many for the better, including improved river water quality and the restoration of habitats and fish passage. However many challenges remain and I hope to use my knowledge and experience to help the Trust to work with others to continue to improve rivers and wildlife. I enjoy gardening, dog walking and, as a ‘lapsed angler’ hope to find time to do more fishing.’



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.

Mr Richard Maxwell Coventry – Trustee

I have lived in north Wales near a tributary of the Clwyd and not  too far from the Conwy for over twenty years now and during that time I  have taken a keen interest in the ecology of these rivers and the wildlife  which they support. I am the treasurer of the Conwy Valley Fisheries & Conservation Association and help to represent that river in Local Fishery Group meetings  with the Environment Agency Wales.  I collate the fishing and wildlife  observations made on the Junction Pool of the Clwyd and the Elwy and I write a  monthly column in Trout & Salmon magazine about the Conwy.  I  have a particular interest in the now very rare migratory smelt (sparling) in  the Conwy, as well as the few remaining colonies of Freshwater Pearl Mussels in  that river. I am a member of the Mammal Society, the Grayling Society, the Wild Trout Trust and am a founder member of the Welsh Rivers Preservation Society.  I was very pleased to become a trustee of the Clwyd & Conwy Rivers Trust at  its formation and have every hope that this Trust will have a major benefit on  the ecology of these rivers.
