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.

Seeing your work clearing the trees and rubbish has made the pond look so much better and has made a massive difference. I am sure once all your work is done it will be an amazing pond again. Yours thankfully Adam Donze" Its nice to know you are making a big difference to our waters.. keep it up :-).
