Our fantastic fishing club based on the river wear

17 miles of water spread over 4 consecutive beats

50 named pools

1 fly only pool (very good seatrout haunt)

Full adult membership price £150per annum

Season grayling ticket £35

Day/night 24hr ticket £25 (salmon,seatrout)

Children fish completely free t+c's apply

Our waters on the middle wear will fish well given water from may onwards, a great club with lots of water to go at and fantastic numbers of seatrout well into double figures are caught every season, salmon are also targeted and plenty get caught every season in spate conditions, with prawn, spin, worm, and fly applications. Night fishing on bishop club is most people's favourite but with that much water in all my time on BADAC I've never ever had to wait to fish a pool, you basically have the river to yourself. A host of friendly members including yours truly, can be arranged to meet up with you and show you around the river/pool/access points etc,before joining if you wish, a very very cheap membership for more info please don't hesitate to drop me a PM or visit the bishop auckland angling club website, regards.....lewis

Last season highlights,
Seatrout of 15lbs featured in trout+salmon magazine (fly caught)

14lbs Seatrout from myself (fly caught)

Alot of Seatrout in the 9lbs class

Some fantastic salmon from members upto 18lbs

Some stunning grayling fishing with 2lbs fish a regular

A real upturn in salmon numbers on the river last year which was nice to see,

Some vital bankwork carried out by members work parties (totally voluntary no obligations) including willow weaving for silt traps and bank erosion work, step installation on badly worn access points.

We also have casting tuition classes held on select days (obviously due to covid these have been cancelled), held at the river completely free,

It look fantastic. I joined a few years ago but to my shame, didn't actually make it up. I had bitten off more fishing than I could chew to be honest. But this makes me feel like a trip up to try it would be worthwhile.

It does look like a great club with some fantastic fly water, reminds me of a beat I used to fish on the Conwy.
Impressive gallery of fish, I wish we had more big sea trout on the Clwyd.....perhaps we do, but they are rarely caught.

Some fantastic fly water for single and double hand rods, also great spinning and bait water if you like that sort of thing, the beats are consecutive also, so from beat 1 to beat 4 it's literally 15mins away, there are some huge fish in the wear which I'vehave been lucky enough to grace my net, strange how certain rivers are famed for different strains/size
