Sharing photos with Flickr

Many of you to our delight over the years have sent us some great photos of rivers, fish and wildife but as yet we haven't had a suitable place to put them. Now to solve part of that problem the WUF has got a "Flickr profile", Flickr is a website that enables you to upload, view & share your pictures over the Internet.

We can upload pictures you send to us to our profile but even better and easier is that you create your own profile and join our flickr group - this is a great way to browse other peoples' pictures and to get to know the various rivers and the fishing beats.

It should develop into a great place - have a look and get involved Here

Or join our group Here


The attached file has full intructions on how to get set up.
