Welcome To Alcove Angling Club
The Alcove Angling Club was established in 1962 for the furtherance of the interest of local angling and to provide coarse fishing for its members. The Club owns one lake, known as The Lido, in Fishponds, Bristol and leases three others, one in Henfield and two at Whitehouse Farm, Earthcott, both near Bristol. They are all stocked with a mixture of coarse fish; carp, roach, bream, tench, perch, chub, pike and rudd. It is non-profit organisation with any superfluous funds being used for the improvement of the interests of the Club.
Alcove Angling is also a member of Bristol & West Federation of Anglers which gives access to the river Avon from Londonderry Farm at Keynsham to Swineford, around 3 miles.
THE REPAIRS TO THE ROAD AT WHITEHOUSE FARM COST A FAIR BIT OF MONEY SO PLEASE DRIVE SLOWLY – 10MPH!!
MEMBERSHIP RENEWALS 2021/22
Membership is now closed for 2020/21 but details on how and where to renew or apply for 2021/22 membership are on the “Membership” page.
Please ensure that you stick to 2mtr government guidelines on social distancing and allow 15mtr between you and the next angler.
The Committee has consulted with the Angling Trust, concerning their 16th March announcement, and clarified that night fishing and matches are permitted from 29th March.
Bookings for night fishing at the Lido can now be made in the normal manner with Alan Phillips for fishing from Monday 29th March. Please adhere to the advice given in your membership handbook when making your booking.
What does remain in place is the requirement to observe social distancing 2m, and 15m to the next peg. All other Club rules concerning fishing in general, or night fishing in particular, will also be enforced. Anyone not complying with any of these will be asked to leave, any future night fishing bookings from them will not be taken and future membership may be called into question.
The other guidance still in place is the travel restriction which continues to be within the definition of “local” as indicated for “exercise”. It is the responsibility of each member to be aware of the restriction and decide whether their travel is local. The assumption has been that around 5 miles is an acceptable distance. You should be prepared to convince any police officer, that challenges you, that your travel is local or you may suffer a fine. The Club has no responsibility for any fines that any member may incur.
