Quick Reminder

Don’t get caught out with a late fee, membership renewals will be taken again at the Prospect Club on Tuesday evening. Prices have been held at the 2014 levels for another year. This is incredibly good value fishing for an amazingly low price.

DSCN0318[1]  New members always welcome, including Season Permits  available to anglers from outside the old Wear Valley District  area.

Membership Renewals

Many thanks to those members who took the opportunity to renew memberships last night and a warm welcome to new and returning members.

For those who were unable come along last night another opportunity is available next week. Tuesday 17th March between 7:00 and 8:45pm. The trout season will be less than a week away by then so please don’t miss the opportunity.

Postal applications may still be made to the secretary but of course we cannot guarantee the post being on time.

Walking the banks this week the river looks in great nick, the winter has not been too harsh so the water could warm up quite quickly. We’re looking forward to a cracking season so don’t wait, get that renewal sorted.

Tight lines.

W&DAC: More than Trout & Salmon

Willington &  District Angling Club is a great game fishery, but has more to offer than Trout and Salmon.

For the Coarse fishing enthusiast Seldom Seen ponds are easily reached from Jubilee Car park. The walk from The Sunnybrow parking is a little longer but not too much of a stretch.

With Roach, Carp , Perch and Tench this well kept secret is underfished to say the least. A tussle with a hard fighting Pike will leave you in no doubt about the great value coarse fishing waiting for your lines.

Swans enjoy a winter visit to the Seldom Senn ponds.
