Renewal for Existing Members

Fishing is a healthy, popular and growing sport that offers the thrilling pursuit of the 'big fish', or the fish for the plate most of which provide a satisfying and nutritionally excellent meal.  You can pop fish fillets and cutlets in the freezer, and regularly enjoy economical fish dishes that more than repay the price of tackle, bait and travel.  Or, just fish for the sport with catch and release.  Should you wisely decide to join the Club, you'll benefit from the friendly, happy and helpful atmosphere.

Membership of the Club is open to anyone interested in the sport of angling regardless of sex, age, disability, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, religion or other beliefs. However, limitation of membership according to available facilities may take place on a non-discriminatory basis.
