The Society was founded in 1899 by a group of dedicated anglers who fished Stanley Reservoir in Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire. Today the Society has grown to be one of the more prominent fishing organisations in the UK with members, made up of seniors, ladies, juveniles, and disabled members from all over the country.
With a good selection of still waters and a number of river stretches to tackle we aim to cater for all types of angling. For canal anglers this year we can now offer three stretches for you to enjoy. The links below will take your to our full Waters List or our Google Map.
In line with the latest government instructions fishing on Society waters will be possible from Wednesday 13/05/2020.
Water report review.
Following a financial review of expenditure and income due to the effects of Covid -19
We have carried out a full review of all our waters and the effects on the club.
River Dove: We have decided to terminate our agreement for the stretch on Riverside Farm , and retain both our other stretches, we took into account that we could fish the other bank for approximately 40% from Fauld Farm side of the river.
One other saving was to cancel our agreement for River Blythe with Blithfield. We have had problems with access on the stretch plus not many members fished it.
Both waters will not be available from June 16th 2020
Now for some good news
We have been able to obtain a lovely new water at Butterton, the same owner as North Road. It is a well established fishery, previously fished by Doultons Angling Club for many years. A lot of work is being done on the fishery getting it ready to open on June 29th. It will be a pleasure fishery with the same rules as North Road.

The £1 juvenile ticket has been retained for 2020 with a view to attracting more juveniles.
Special rules will apply i.e. child protection, fishing in the same peg with an adult, 3 rods max per peg.
It is hoped that this new initiative will provide a gateway into the sport for the young of today to become the anglers of tomorrow.
