Fathers and sons (and daughters too)

Membership cards for 2013

Members’ licences for 2013 will be available for renewing members to pick up from Ebchester Post Office from this Saturday 16 March.

Salmon on the Derwent: Dispelling a few myths

As I’m sure you are all aware, the river has recently seen the completion of a new fish pass at Derwenthaugh on the Axwell Park club’s water. This pass is on the very lowest beat of the Derwent and was put in place to comply with European and British legislation to allow free movement of […]
