Who was Anne?

Anne Voss Bark was a dedicated conservationist and prominent hotelier. Her love of fly fishing made her aware of changes in the countryside detrimental to our rivers and fish. She worked tirelessly to see this demise reversed.

Anne will also always be well-remembered from her time as hostess at the Arundell Arms in Lifton, Devon, an eminent fishing and country sports hotel. Today the Arundell continues Anne’s legacy in their work to promote and encourage freshwater conservation, a commitment the hotel hopes will continue well into the future.

A strong supporter of S&TC, Anne also founded the Westcountry Rivers Trust where she embraced the benefits of total river management.

We rely on your support to protect wild fish and the places they live.

By donating or joining as a member you will be making a huge contribution to the fight to protect the UK's waters and ensure a sustainable future for wild fish.
