Welcome the Belper & District Angling Club website – CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION!
Belper & District Angling Club is a fishing club based in Derbyshire, with a range of waters catering for coarse, match, specimen, carp, lure and fly anglers. These include stretches of river and canal, plus a fishing lake stocked with carp and mixed coarse fish.
We operate an open membership which currently has no waiting list.
Whether you’re a pleasure angler, a seasoned matchman, specialist angler or fly fisherman, we have a venue to suit your tastes.
Belper is situated in the Amber Valley, right beside the River Derwent and on the A6 between Derby and Matlock, in the DE56 postcode area.
Belper is a historic market town in Derbyshire’s Peak District, famous for the mills which form part of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site. Belper’s location and picturesque location – helped by our very own River Derwent – makes it a popular destination for tourists and outdoor pursuit enthusiasts; anglers included!
Our oldest and most famous venue is a long stretch of double bank fishing on the middle River Derwent, stretching from Ambergate down to Milford. The Belper stretch of the Derwent is available to fish on day ticket, as well as being available to all members with a club book.
The club runs the fishing on Wyver Lane Pond in Belper. This pond is available exclusively to members. It fishes well all year and contains a mixture of species, including carp to over 20lb.
Another of the club’s venues is a mile-long stretch of the Erewash Canal close to Langley Mill. Fishing on the canal is available to members only and contains a mixture of species including bream, perch, carp and pike.
