Denbigh & Clwyd Angling Club and Bodelwyddan Game Anglers have amalgamated and will provide members of the new club, named Vale of Clwyd Angling Club, with more than 30 fishing venues offering top class year-round opportunities to fish for salmon, sea trout and wild brown trout, as well as for grayling, pike and other coarse fish species.
In addition to the fishing previously controlled by Denbigh & Clwyd Angling Club, the amalgamation will provide members with fishing on three more beats on the Afon Elwy, one on the Afon Cledwen at the headwaters of the Afon Elwy and a short beat on the Afon Conwy near Betws y Coed. It will also include fishing at three more lakes: Tai Lake, a trout fishery near Trofarth; two small pools know as Hafod Pools near Llansannan which contain trout and coarse fish; and Llyn Syberi, a top class coarse fishery near Eglwysbach in the Conwy valley.
The club has also launched a new website www.valeofclwydanglingclub.org containing details about the club, membership and a list of all the venues where members will be able to fish as from March 2016.
Although there will be a substantial increase in membership as a result of the amalgamation it is likely that there will still be a limited number of vacancies available in the new club for 2016 and anglers thinking of becoming a member of the new club are being advised to make their interest known to the membership secretary, Paul King, 12, Llys Tywysog, Tremerchion, St Asaph, Denbighshire LL17 0UL. [email protected] telephone: 01745 710560 at the earliest opportunity.
Even though the number of fishing venues available to members from 2016 onwards has almost doubled, there won’t be any increase in the annual membership fees for the 2016 season.
