About Fenton and District Angling Society

Fenton and District angling society was formed in 1906 with a view to providing affordable fishing to the people of Stoke on Trent and the surrounding area, an objective that has been consistently achieved over the last one hundred or so years and to this day the society still provides arguably the best value for money fishing in Staffordshire and certainly some of the most affordable in the entire country.

From the early days with very few waters there has been a consistent development and progression which brings us to the present day and a huge variety of venues to explore catering for every discipline of angling and every ability from beginner to specialist angler. The society now boasts no fewer than twenty eight waters including lakes, rivers, reservoir, canals and ponds and is constantly seeking to improve the quality of these venues with regular introductions of stock fish.

Over the last few years we have assembled an impressive trade stand and make regular appearances at shows and game fairs to promote the society, our open day at Dilhorne is now a regular occurrence, all of which has resulted in membership numbers swelling as anglers from far and wide join us to sample the superb fishing we offer. Our game fishing membership has seen a significant increase and we now offer excellent game angling on nine river venues.

As we look to the future and continue to develop our venues and reputation opportunities present themselves for members to become involved with the society. Regular work parties are organised and can be hugely enjoyable to attend, officials and seasoned members that attend can be a wealth of information that will enhance your fishing experiences. Bailiffing positions are always available and on occasions there will be an opportunity to join the management team for those who would like to give a little extra and experience the wonderful and interesting world of club and fisheries management.
