Welcome to the Website of Ryburn and Halifax Angling Society.

Welcome to 2017 everyone! The club in in a very healthy position and we are grateful for all your support during these trying times.

We are happy to announce that there are no changes to license costs this year. All prices will remain the same throughout 2017.

For you course lads, the river has produced a few big chub & barbel. Some big pike have been coming out at Stern Mills and the canal should definitely not be dismissed.

The match scene has been visited by lots of club lads and a good crowd fish on a regular basis and is more for fun than the money match programme. The Thursday evening league is more for the seasoned lads and is a tad more difficult to tame!

The work at the Swamp Dam has been completed, with 20 platforms installed & a new bank on the far side. A new entrance and a topcoat on the car park have also added to the appeal of the water. Some 4,000 fish have been stocked, with chub, bream, roach, tench, ide and barble amongst those integrated.

We have added new European signs to existing club signs.
Our three bailiffs, Tim, John and Paul will be up and down all year round. Feel free to have a chat and introduce yourselves. Have a great year. Remember to report anyone (or anything!) not fishing to the rules to the club secretary.
