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
We would normally be selling memberships for 2020/21 during April, with sessions at The Page Club, and from May at Scott Tackle however in view of the current health issues it has been decided that the sale of membership renewals will be delayed.
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 will be announced once government guidelines become more clear, hopefully towards the end of June.
Following government guidelines about staying at home and only travel for a limited number of reasons being permitted, plus advice from the Angling Trust, our waters remain closed until at least 15th April 2020. It is likely that the government will extend travel restrictions to at least the end of May. We will continue to follow best information whenever it becomes available and constantly review the situation. In the meanwhile going fishing is not amongst the permitted travel reasons nor does it fall into the taking exercise category.
