Mitre Angling Club was established in 1967 when it had fishing on a single Pennine reservoir. Nowadays Mitre Angling Club provides outstanding quality river fishing on thirteen miles of rivers and streams, including stretches of the Calder, Ribble, Wharfe and Doe, and on three reservoirs, all in beautiful surroundings in the Lancashire and Yorkshire countryside.
Mitre Angling Club members are predominantly fly fishermen, although opportunities exist for bait fishing on selected waters. Fishing is for brown trout, rainbow trout, grayling, coarse fish, and some salmon and sea trout.
The club is relatively small, with an establishment of 90 members, so there is never a problem of overcrowding.
No matter whether you prefer the challenge of small streams, the comfort of larger rivers, or stillwaters, there is something for you. If you are new to fly fishing, more experienced club members are always willing to help you. Mitre Angling Club featured in Flyfishing and Flytying magazine's "Angling Club of the Month" article in May 2017 - click the link to read the article...
