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.
