Why join Kilnsey Angling Club?

Formed in 1840, Kilnsey Angling Club has a rich heritage and occupies an important place in the history of fly fishing in the UK. Over the years many illustrious anglers, some of whose contribution to fly fishing and fly dressing endure to this day, have been Members of this famous Club.

Today, our Membership ranges from novices just starting out on their fishing journey to some of the most accomplished fly fishers - a number of whom are published authors and regular contributors to national angling magazines.
