Welcome to Ashfield Angling Club

Ashfield Angling club was formed back in 1988 by a group of 88 anglers from the Kirkby in Ashfield area who took the opportunity to lease both Gunthorpe and Hazelford Weirs.
Since then the committee has grown the club significantly by providing high quality waters at a reasonable cost to it's members. We now have 800 members and many top quality angling venues in the Newark and Notts regions.
We are dedicated to providing quality pleasure and specimen fishing venues for our members and are continually looking to expand our venue numbers. Our club has a top level profile within angling circuits and boasts a large waiting list every year.
As a member of Ashfield Angling Club you can be assured that your fishing will be top class, our Rivers Lakes and Ponds contain some prize Barbel, Carp, Bream, Pike and many other fresh water species which are guaranteed to keep you wondering what your next catch will be.

Junior Photo Competition Winners

From Maxine: "Today has been a really great one. Colin and I met up with Memphis and Kyle, the juniors in the photo comp winners to give them there prizes, their faces say it all. We would like to thank a few people who very kindly gave the kids those great big smiles by donating the prizes for them; you have all been very generous. Andrew Brown for the camera, Memphis was taking photos within minutes. We have two tackle shops to thank, Tony & Karen at Horncastle Angling Centre for the Shimano Reel and Shimano caps, and Tony & Wayne from Future Fishing for the 2 x Wagler Rods. Without you all the smiles on the kid’s faces would not have been possible."

VBS is there to support club bailiffs so hopefully we'll see the club represented very soon.

Thrumpton is Dawn till Dusk

Members are reminded that Thrumpton is dawn till Dusk only - this rule is strictly enforced anyone breaking it is jeopardising their membership! Dawn till Dusk Times here
Mick, one of our Thrumpton Bailiffs, has put signs up at the entrance with weekly Dusk and Dawn times.


We have taken advice from the Environment Agency and due to the recent local KHV outbreaks in Leicestershire and South Yorkshire we will be banning the use of keep nets from all of our still waters until further notice. All landing nets, weigh slings, carp sacks etc. must be dry before being placed in to the water, preferably via sunlight. Please also be aware that damp stink bags can also carry the disease. It will be treated as a very serious offence should this restriction be broken due to the danger presented to the health of our fish stock. Thank you for your understanding, hopefully we will be back to normality in the near future.
Koi herpesvirus (KHV) is a disease that affects all varieties of carp, is highly contagious and may cause up to 100% mortality. It can be transmitted by fish to fish contact and also via angling equipment and contaminated water. Signs to look out for include lethargy, damaged gills, sunken eyes, flaky skin mucus. If you see any carp displaying these symptoms please contact a bailiff or committee member asap.
