The LACC was formed to create a club which would cater for anglers who love lure fishing and to ensure that the fishery will be managed with predators given equal consideration to other fish. We are more than happy to welcome anglers who wish to fish more traditional methods and also except match bookings from clubs, subject to availability.
NON MEMBERS MAY FISH, BUT DAY TICKETS ARE NOT AVAILABLE FROM BAILIFFS ON THE BANK AND MUST BE BOUGHT ONLINE BEFORE FISHING. JUST CLICK THE "DAY TICKETS" TAB ABOVE.

With boat traffic on the canals now slowing down and the perch and zander looking to get some nosh inside them ahead of the winter, now is the perfect time, to be getting out and casting a line on LACC waters.
In the last few weeks we have held some really succesful competitions.
Pairs League: First off was the 3rd round of the Pairs League which was fished at Warwick and produced a win for our Chairman and Secretary, John Cheyne and Steve Wilson, who bagged a massive 784cm final total, that was made up predominantly of good sized perch over 25cm. That pushed "The Worcester Wanglers" up to 3rd in the league behind "Team No Name" (Vidar Thomassen and Alan Brown) and "The Canalmasters" (Richard Haines and Mike McGuire). Due to clashes with other events and the need to have more time to finish the Matchplay Championship, we have taken the decision to move the dates of the final two Pairs League Matches. They will now be as follows:
Round 4 - 13th January (venue to be confirmed)
Round 5 (and AGM) - 24th February - Lowsonford on the South Stratford Canal
Autumn Colours on the canal for the last pairs match..That's Steve Wilson in the distance !
Our first ever Individual Championships were held on October 8th and provided some fantastic fishing, particularly for those willing to do a bit of walking ! LACC Pin Up Boy and "King of the Selfie" Richard Haines, put everyone to the sword and won handsomely with 18 fish for 450cm in total. The average size of the fish was excellent with plenty of perch over 30cm in his winning haul. The ever consistent Steve Wilson was 2nd and Alan Brown was 3rd from a field of 21 anglers.

Another new event for the club was the Specimen Challenge where teams of two anglers had the opportunity to rove right along all 26 miles of our canals over a 9 hour period trying to catch the two biggest perch and two biggest zander they could find. We all met up that the Leopard Pub in Bishops Tachbrook and then drove off in pairs to our chosen destinations to hunt for monsters. While there were a couple of tales of very big fish lost, no absolute beasts were caught but Dave Burgess and Tom Andrews netted two cracking zeds of 48cm and 59cm plus two chunky perch of 31cm and 33cm to take the victory. As we chatted, drank and enjoyed the buffet at the end of the match in The Leopard, everyone agreed that it was a great format for a comp and so we will be holding this again next year.

Christmas Get Together: December 16th 2017
Every Christmas we hold a fun fish-in and get together for all members. This year it will be held on December 16th at Lowsonford. Our intention is to hire the Village Hall and cook up some Bacon Butties for arrival in the morning and then put on a festive buffet when the fish-in comes to a conclusion in the afternoon. Traditionally we ask everyone to bring along a 'secret santa' lure fishing related present worth around £10 wrapped up in xmas paper. Then at the end of the match everyone takes turns in choosing a secret present from the pile.
Make sure you get along to our Christmas get together on December 16th
