COTMANHAY ANGLING CLUB
Cotmanhay AC was formed in the late 1950s for anglers in the Derbyshire area, but they also have members from further afield now. The Club controls about 1.5 miles of the Erewash Canal in the picturesque Erewash Valley, from Barker’s Lock 70 to Shipley Lock 72, with good mixed coarse and predator fishing. This friendly club is actively seeking new members of all ages. Membership is very reasonable at just £16, or day tickets are available on the towpath for £2.

Tactics? Mainly pole. Maggots, pinkies, squatts and chopped worm effective for the silver fish and perch. Lures and sprats from the local market attracting the pike.
