The Late Tony Carter

Tony Carter, aged 89, died in November.

Tony was a great friend to the Monnow and was part of the original Gang of Four” (+ Ian Lindsay, Robert Denny & Patrick Lloyd) that designed and implemented the ground-breaking River Monnow Project.

He represented the S&TA on the RMP committee and his tireless work as treasurer over the three year duration of this massive project was vital when dealing with the convoluted rules and regulations imposed by DEFRA. His efforts alone represented some 20% of the match funding required.

That same group rented several of the Monnow tributary beats together prior to releasing them to the Passport scheme. With his often antiquated equipment, Tony usually caught the largest trout!

He also served as a trustee of the Wye & Usk Foundation and was a founding member of the WTT.
