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.

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.
