Welcome

Dereham and District Angling Club is an open club, set in the heart of rural Norfolk offering "traditional" angling in its mixed species fisheries to local and visiting anglers alike.

Established for over 60 years, the club welcomes members of all ages and abilities, whether an absolute novice or an established professional, we are more than happy to accomodate your angling needs.

Primarily a coarse angling club, we also have a small sea angling section, however there is currently no game angling facilities.

We hope you enjoy looking around our site and find it of interest. We would like to wish each and every one of you 'tight lines'.

Respect

We ask every visitor to our fisheries to pay particular care to the way in which you treat other anglers, the environment and inparticular the welfare of the fish and other forms of wildlife.

We take great pride in being a family friendly club, accessible and welcoming to people of all ages, please help us to stay that way.
