Top river, canal and lake sport for very little outlay
IF YOU want to fish some of the country’s most prolific river and canal stretches then we recommend you join Birmingham Anglers Association.
The Midlands-based club boasts an extensive list of running water venues, some of which offer sport not found anywhere else.
From the River Trent in Staffordshire down to stunning sections of the Rivers Severn, Wye and Teme in Worcestershire, whether it’s specimen barbel, bags of chub and bream or nets of roach, the club has a fishery for you .
As well as some top river waters, BAA also runs a number of canal fisheries in the Birmingham area. The Birmingham Worcester and Staffordshire Worcestershire Canals to the west and the Fazeley, Coventry and Trent & Mersey Canals to the east all offer match and specimen fishing as well as good prospects for the roving lure angler.
Seven stillwater fisheries on the club’s card offer a nice alternative with roach, tench and carp all on offer.
All waters can currently be fished for the price of a day ticket, so if you can’t afford a club book you won’t miss out.
