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 2020/21
The plan is that current membership books, with an orange cover 2019/20, will be valid until 31st July and new ones for 2020/21 will need to be obtained in order to continue membership from 1st August. The new ones will then be valid until 30th April 2021 and we trust that things will be back to normal for 2021/22. Details on how and where to renew 2020/21 membership are on the “Membership” page.
Please ensure that you stick to 2mtr government guidelines on social distancing.
AMENDMENTS TO RULES
Due to the actions of a few members which have resulted in injury to both fish and fowl we have had to introduce the following restrictions;
- No use of floating bread, other floating baits are permitted.
- Braided line is banned.
- No use of spods.
- BARBLESS HOOKS ONLY.
Continued membership of any member found not adhering to these rules will be brought into question.
