Welcome to Yarm Angling Limited.

WE NEED SOME HELP.

After more than 40 years serving the club in a variety of roles, Mike Dresser has decided that the time has come for him to stop working in the social club with effect from the end of May 2018. I am sure that all our members will join the committee in thanking Mike for all the work he has done for the club over the years - without him the social club would not be the success that it undoubtedly is.
So we are looking for volunteers to take on some of his duties, pricipally running the bar one or two nights a week (from 7:00 to 11:00 although we normally close earlier than that if there are no customers) and general cleaning (which averages about 1 hour per day).
So if you can help in either role, please drop into the clubhouse any evening (except Saturdays), or call  Mike on 07864845864 or Dick Sidgwick on 07870680953 or Jim Trainer on 07725465985, or call 01642 786444 and leave a message, or send a email to yarmal@virginmedia.com

There will not be any increase in membership costs for 2018. However all members should note that the age at which they transition to the rate applicable for pensioners will be increased in future years in line with the State Pension Age as laid out in government legislation.

These stillwaters have been protected against otters and have private off-road car parks.

There is no waiting list for new membership,  follow this link for details of membership costs and how to join. 

Yarm Angling have possibly the biggest match calendar in the area, with a sponsored club championship meaning good payouts at individual matches and across the whole season. Follow this link to the calendar, and this link to find out more about matches and the championship

Day tickets are available for non-members are available (£3 for the river and £6 for the stillwaters), but they must be accompanied by a member and the tickets purchased in advance from the Head Quarters (open 7.00 p.m to 11.00 p.m. daily except Saturday). 

We are also one of the few clubs in the country to have our own licenced headquarters, including meeting room facilities, which is open daily (except Saturdays) from 7:00 p.m.

IF YOU WANT TO TEMPORARILY SUSPEND YOUR MEMBERSHIP FOR ANY REASON PLEASE CONTACT THE CLUB THROUGH LETTER OR EMAIL. THIS COULD AVOID YOU HAVING TO RE-PAY THE JOINING FEE  IF YOU DECIDE TO RENEW YOUR MEMBERSHIP IN THE FUTURE.

Our book, “The History of Yarm Angling Club”, written by Mike Broadley, was issued free to all members and was well received. New members will also receive a free copy and additional copies can be purchased for £5.00 from the Clubhouse and CAC & DAC tackle shops.

Members of Yarm Angling Limited must also be members of the Association of Teesside and District Angling Clubs (ATDAC), giving access to a further 8 miles of Middle Tees water and a couple of stillwaters. YarmAangling Limited are also a member of the Lower Tees Angling Association (LTAA), with access to about 2 miles of the Lower Tees at Bowesfield. Note that this LTAA water is used for several small matches each year, click here for a list of dates.
******************************************************************************
The clubhouse and bar will be closed on Saturday evenings until further notice, as the number of customers did not justify us continuing to employ a barman and we could not get anyone to volunteer to run the bar on Saturdays on a regular basis. The bar will continue to be open from Sunday to Friday, staffed by volunteers. If you are able to help out please give the clubhouse a call.

MAINTENANCE WORK ON YARM AND ATDAC FISHERIES

 Farmers and gamekeepers have reported continuing problems with suspected poaching as well as theft of farm property.

 Whilst we as fishermen enjoy the right to roam the river bank and cast a line, the sight of somebody wandering around without fishing tackle isn’t allowed (our rights are to fish) and can sometimes set alarm bells ringing.

 The legality is that maintenance work including the trimming of trees and clearance of access paths should be agreed with the farmer or landowner prior to any work being carried out. There are also potential implications regarding insurance cover for members acting independently on unapproved maintenance.

 Occasionally there have been reports of members on the river bank who don’t have fishing tackle but they were believed to be in fact carrying out well intentioned maintenance work.

 We do not want to discourage this, far from it, all help is much appreciated. However, this needs to be done properly and the right people informed beforehand of your expected presence and activities.

 Dick Sidgwick Tel 07870680953 and Paul Richmond Tel 07815818030 plan and carry out regular work on the river bank, liaising with the farmers or landowners to ensure that we do not cause them any problems.

To preserve good relations we request anybody planning or wishing to help with work on the river bank to please speak to Dick or Paul beforehand.

All offers of help will be very welcome.
