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.
The Club is currently in the middle of it's three week Festival with the main Weekend just completed. On the first weekend, 700 ducks took to the water in 4 races at the Club's Willington stretch of the Stour and in doing so raised over £400 for Shipston Home Nursing and Fight for Sight. A huge thank-you to those who came and cheered the ducks on the day and to those who were kind enough to buy a duck (or more).
The main Angling Festival took place over the weekend of 25th to 27th July and was supported by 3 days of events at Shipston Sports Clubs. There were plenty of activties with, to name just a few, angling coaching, laser clay shooting, karate displays, a dog show, a childrens fair, bands or a disco on each night and lots of great food, beer and cider.
The conclusion of the angling element was the prize giving (results available via the links above) both for the 3 day competition and for the junior match on 21st June. Megan Harris was awarded the cup and trophy for the top weight and biggest fish respectively and a host of tackle prizes. Each of the other participants received a rod and reel outfit.
Over the main weekend 28 new juniors had a go at Angling and all are invited to our Introductory Day at the Club's lakes at Aston Magna on Sunday 3rd August. The event is open to all and so if you missed us at the weekend, just give Mike Wells a call and he'll book you in (contact details below).
This brings the total number of juniors that have fished with the Club in the last 13 months up to over 60. With many of last year's juniors joining in with this year's events. We are very lucky this year to again have our junior angling activities sponsored by Stour Valley Lions. The Lions have been excellent supporters of the club and are constantly challenging us to do more with the juniors. We feel we're doing quite well and doing justice to their support.
If you'd like to find out more about the junior activities then please contact Mike Wells on 01608 664026 / firstname.lastname@example.org or take a look at the new Junior Angling page which has details of the events.
