Welcome to

Manchester Anglers' Association

Manchester Anglers' Association

We are one of the oldest established game angling clubs in the north west of England having been founded in 1878.

The Association owns all of the double bank fishing rights (apart from just a few yards) from the Dales Way river bridge at Far Gearstones above the Ribblehead Viaduct downstream to Helwith Bridge. Below that point, we own single, right bank fishing rights for a short length. The fishery enjoys approximately 10 miles of extensive trout and salmon fishing in some of the most spectacular scenery in England. The fishery flows through the headwaters of the River Ribble in the limestone uplands of North Yorkshire, within the parish of Horton in Ribblesdale.

In addition to this extensive river fishery we also own outright a 4.6 acre hill tarn above Horton equipped with lodge, boathouse and boat.

Not only do we welcome experienced new members both male and female, eager to pit their skills against our wily wild trout but also those keen to try out this fascinating and addictive sport, perhaps for the first time.
