The Founding Clubs. 

Denbigh & Clwyd Angling Club

The club was officially formed in 1991 following the amalgamation of 2 neighbouring clubs – the Denbigh and District Angling Club, which started life in 1959 and the Clwyd Angling Club, one of Wales’ oldest angling clubs, which could trace its roots back to 1928.

Through the amalgamation, the new club was able to offer anglers access to waters extending from above Ruthin, at the top end of the Vale of Clwyd, down to a point just outside of St. Asaph, some 14 miles away by road.

Apart from a small number of sections, the club has access to either single or double bank fishing for the whole length of the River Clwyd between the uppermost and lowest beats.

Bodelwyddan Game Anglers 

In March 1975, long before iPads and smart phones, a new angling club was formed to counter concerns that local youngsters were becoming too inactive.

A few months earlier, Bodelwyddan Town Council had uncovered documents showing that the fishing rights on a section of the River Elwy had been given to local residents. It felt this was an ideal opportunity to form an angling club and encourage youngsters to take up fishing.

In addition to three beats on the River Elwy, BGA has one on the Cledwen as well as stocked still waters, a wild trout lake and even coarse lakes.

History

Back in 1954 a group of a dozen or so friends and match anglers regularly met at the Prince Albert Pub in Newton Street Macclesfield, Cheshire. They fished either on day tickets or as guests of one of the big fishing clubs of the day. This led to the idea that they should club together and rent a water of their own, and the rest “as they say is history”

Today

From those humble beginnings the Prince Albert Angling Society has grown to be arguably the largest and most successful fishing club in Europe today boasting a portfolio of circa 220 waters, within a geographic area stretching from the Scottish Border in the North to the river Wye in the South, the Fylde Coast in the West and the Pennine Chain in the East These waters give members the opportunity to fish coarse lakes and rivers simply for pleasure, for the specimen angler numerous lakes with carp over 35lbs and lakes and rivers holding pike to 35lbs plus. Barbel on numerous rivers run well into double figures and specimen chub commonly feature in catches on these rivers.

Equally the Game Angler can  trout fish on reservoirs, lakes and streams and salmon fish on large fast flowing rivers, and all of this set in some of the most glorious areas of the English and Welsh Countryside. Prince Albert has a number of well stocked still water trout fisheries plus we offer members the opportunity to fish a number of large trout fisheries including Blithfield, Ladybower and Cleweddog Reservoirs
