Month: March 2018

Ready . Steady. FISH.

The new Trout season is almost here. Has your new licence arrived yet? If you paid for it on line or with a recurring direct debit it should be arriving any time now.

If not your current licence is normally valid until March 31st.

Did you remember to send off your membership renewal. It’s not too late but hurry get your renewal, or new application, off to the secretary today.

The waters have been running high and will be running cold but the fishing Gods have promised all will be well and we will enjoy another cracking start to another cracking season.

W&DAC wishes you a fantastic season.

Tight lines.



2018/19 Season is almost here.

It’s almost here IMG_0190. The new Trout season and our new club season will open in just a couple of weeks.

Please don’t forget to get your membership renewal in in good time for the club to get it back to you. Remember this needs to be with the secretary by March 21st (we really do not wish to make funds from late renewal fees).

Your membership takes you right through to March 2019 enabling you to fish the full Salmon season from February and of course the winter Grayling season on top of your Trout fishing thought the summer.

Please be sure to include an S.A.E large enough for a A6 booklet and key ring with sufficient postage to cover that cost.

If this seasons opens anything like last year we’re in for a cracking spring.

Membership Renewals


Membership renewals and new applications are now being taken for the 2018/19 season.

Please send your renewal slip (from your membership book) to the secretary with an appropriate S.A.E. and payment.


Remember, this is a busy time, the secretary is handling a number of applications and will look to get your book back to you as quickly as possible, but as ever, the earlier your renewal is received the earlier it can be returned.

The start of the 2018 Trout Season is very close, please don’t leave this to the last minute.

Last year we asked anglers to display a small card in your windscreen to let the bailiffs know who was fishing. Feedback has been that members were not comfortable with this. The club has listened and has withdrawn these for the coming season.IMG_0190


We are introducing a new tool to help bailiffs on the river bank; anglers will receive a key-ring style tab which we are asking you to wear on the outside of your jacket. Bailiffs will then be able to recognise members without the need to disturb your fishing and ask you to search through your pockets for your membership book. Your cooperation with this request will be very helpful and very much appreciated. Thank you.
