About Anne Voss-Bark

Anne Voss-Bark was a dedicated conservationist and her love of flyfishing made her aware of changes in the countryside detrimental to our rivers and fish, and she worked tirelessly to see this demise reversed. Anne was a strong supporter of the Salmon & Trout Association, the only UK fisheries campaigning charity. She was a Council Member, Vice Chairman and finally Vice President of the charity.
Anne, with others, also founded the West Country Rivers Trust, embracing the concept of total river management.
Anne will also always be well-remembered as the perfect hostess at the Arundell Arms in Lifton, Devon, which was rather run down on acquisition but developed by her over nearly 50 years into today’s eminent fishing and country sports hotel.
