Lymm Angling Club “Caring for fish and the environment”
Lymm Angling Club is one of the largest angling clubs in the Northwest of
England, having grown considerably since it’s foundation in 1948. It is
proud to have two of the legendary names in modern angling as its vice-
presidents, namely Frank Warwick, who is renowned for his captures of
monster carp, and Charles Jardine, a world-wide star in fly-fishing
At the heart of the club are its still-waters which offer over 60 acres of
water for members to enjoy. These waters range from small farm ponds
to large meres and offer excellent fishing in scenic surroundings. Most
provide secure parking via padlocked gates.
Some very large carp lurk in our waters with at least four of them producing
carp in excess of the magical 30lb mark. Backed by numerous fish of over 20lb
and a crop of single-figure fish, there is plenty to go at for both the dedicated
carp angler and those who are just starting out on their carping exploits.
But the club isn’t just about carp angling. We pride ourselves on owning one of
the best, big tench waters in the Northwest in the form of Lymmvale. Here you
will find tench in numbers with specimens in excess of 10lb swimming alongside
huge catfish, the largest of which is well in excess of 60lb.
For the out and out pleasure angler, places like Grimsditch Mill Pool, Farm Pool,
Woodside Pool and Walk Mill Pool offer excellent mixed species fishing with ‘fish-a-chuck’ action during the summer
months. Micklewrights Flash is also an excellent pleasure fishing water that includes a good stock of pike for anglers to
target during the Winter months.
If you prefer to fish on rivers, then the club has a great
selection for you to choose from, including the River Severn,
the River Vyrnwy, the River Dane and the
River Bollin. All of these rivers hold stocks
of barbel and chub along with seasonal
game fish for those preferring to cast a fly.
All in all, we believe the waters in our
portfolio offer something for everyone.
It’s just up to you to go out and catch
