Junior members wishing to take part please meet at the Jubilee Car Park ready for a    2:30 PM start.

The river was recently stocked and promises to be in prime fishing condition, a great day to be had by all.

Ferryham Waters

With effect from today May 1st 2019 we regret that Willington District Angling Club members are no longer able to fish the Ferryham Waters on the Rivers Wear and Browney  which we have previously accessed through an agreement with another club. That club has now ended the lease agreement with the riparian owner meaning that we no longer have access.

The club is always interested in new opportunities for our members and would be pleased to hear from members if they become aware of any fishing which may become  available.
