Christchurch Angling Club…
‘the South of England’s premier fishing club’.
Providing exceptional, affordable angling for 75 years…
17lb 8oz Barbel on the Stour.
One of the greatest catches of the year – a 17lb 8oz barbel on the stick float.
In a David v Goliath battle of skill and finesse, the this fish (which is a Club record, and the second biggest barbel ever tamed on float tactics) fell to a CAC member during a session on one of the Christchurch AC’s stretches of the Dorset Stour.
Founded in 1938, the ongoing success of our Club has not only been as a result of the well known waters under its control and the exceptional fish that they have (and continue to produce), but also the friendly club atmosphere that is very much a part of being a Christchurch Angling Club member.
With regular fishing matches, meetings, coaching days and events held throughout the year, anglers who like a good social side to their fishing are well catered for. We also have many members who enjoy their fishing in quiet tranquility, away from the masses, for whom the abundance of off the beaten track places to fish are plentiful.
There is a wealth of fishing for both coarse and game anglers alike; the Club’s waters providing a wide and varied choice of venues to fish and species to fish for. The aim of the Club is to provide high quality and affordable fishing, whatever your preferences.
Working alongside all of the main angling and fishery-related conservation groups, the Club plays a major part in the upkeep of habitat that fish, wildlife and anglers can all continue to enjoy.
Coaching and Education
Young anglers form an important part of the Club’s forward thinking and the coaching and education of our young anglers is high on our list of priorities. The Club has a large team of coaches and instructors in both coarse and game angling disciplines, which allows us to organise and run coaching and teaching events for all its anglers, both young and old alike……do join us.
