Back in 1954 a group of a dozen or so friends and match anglers regularly met at the Prince Albert Pub in Newton Street Macclesfield, Cheshire. They fished either on day tickets or as guests of one of the big fishing clubs of the day. This led to the idea that they should club together and rent a water of their own, and “the rest” as they say “is history”.
From those humble beginnings the Prince Albert Angling Society has grown to be arguably the largest and most successful fishing club in Europe today boasting a portfolio of circa 220 waters, within a geographic area stretching from the Scottish Border in the North to the river Wye in the South, the Fylde Coast in the West and the Pennine Chain in the East These waters give members the opportunity to fish coarse lakes and rivers simply for pleasure, for the specimen angler numerous lakes with carp over 35lbs and lakes and rivers holding pike to 35lbs plus. Barbel on numerous rivers run well into double figures and specimen chub commonly feature in catches on these rivers.
Equally the Game Angler can trout fish on reservoirs, lakes and streams and salmon fish on large fast flowing rivers, and all of this set in some of the most glorious areas of the English and Welsh Countryside. Prince Albert has a number of well stocked still water trout fisheries plus we offer members the opportunity to fish a number of large trout fisheries including Blithfield, Ladybower and Cleweddog Reservoirs.
All of this is available within a well-managed and financially sound Angling Society with bailiffs looking after our waters and a sensible rule book by which we safeguard the interests of both our club and our members.
Every member is issued with a comprehensive guide which gives essential information about our waters and we publish an excellent magazine (Hook Line & Sinker) supported by a News Letter to keep our members up to date with news, changes and new waters.
