Welcome to Shipston on Stour and District Angling Club's website.
The Club aims to provide high quality angling in and around Shipston and has both lakes and river stretches that we think achieve this aim.
Membership cards for the current 2015/16 are available from Malcolm Allinson on 01608 661508 / 07958 693690 (9 Mill Street, Shipston on Stour. CV36 4AN.)
This year's Festival kicked off on Sunday 19th July with our excellent charity Duck Race. This year saw 673 ducks take to the waters at Shipston Bridge in four races and with a record number of spectators. Our thanks go to everyone who sponsored a duck and everyone who came along to cheer on their duck. After handing out the winnings over £500 will be shared between Shipston Home Nursing and junior angling in the Shipston area.
If you are, or know someone, who would like to have a go at angling, then pop along to one of our festival days and have a go for free..... all kit is provided on the day and we have plenty of coaches available to show you how to get started. This offer is open to adults and children, boys and girls alike. Some of our most promising juniors are girls, so this really is a sport for the whole family.

Looking back a bit, December 2014 saw Stour Valley Lions again declared their wholehearted support for junior angling in Shipston with a generous donation. More details and a photo can be seen on the Junior Angling page. This donation and a grant from the Club of an equal size means that the Club now has two Level One trained and certifides coaches - Rob and Stuart.
If you would like to find out more about the junior activities then please contact Mike Wells on 01608 664026 / email@example.com or take a look at the Junior Angling page which has details of the events. You can also contact Mike for any general enquiries.
