Welcome to our new website! The club has had an extremely busy close season and we are really pleased with the progress made on a number of fronts. We will be regularly updating this site to keep everyone up to speed with the developments taking place.

The club has pleasure in announcing that membership fees will remain at the same levels as 2010 for this coming season, this provides members with some of the most affordable game fishing in the North East. The club has been working hard over the last year to achieve Clubmark Accreditation (Quality assurance qualification) which we were awarded in February 2011. We are now in a position where we have a number of qualified coaches and procedures in place in order for us to develop a junior section at the club. This work will be supported by funding we have received from Sport England and the European Tackle Trade Association.

 The club has pleasure in welcoming Nick Wood to the club who has been recruited to the position of Head Bailiff, the committee have been aware for some time of the problems in regards to poaching and anti social behaviour. Nick will be working closely with members and other organisations to eradicate this problem and ensure members have a safe and enjoyable setting to fish. Can all members please report any concerns or episodes of poaching / inappropriate behaviour to Nick on 07580720656

We have a number of other exciting projects in the pipeline so watch this space for further details! In the meantime the season is nearly here and the river will recieve a supplementary stocking of quality brown trout so should fish well from the off. Tight lines all!
