Now that the AGM has been held, we are in a somewhat uncertain state, waiting to see how the covid epidemic progresses. The draft programme for 2021 can be seen in the Events section. Always check there for up-to-date information.

Recent club events

11 December 2020 - Virtual Annual Dinner

A first for Ouse Valley - a meeting using Zoom. Thanks for making the effort to join in.


18 October 2020 - Moorhen

Good to see so many people turning out for what proved to be a really enjoyable day. As ever, fishing was easy for some, and tough for others. The weather was kind and the bacon rolls were excellent.


20 September 2020 - Brick Farm

There had to be a change in venue for this trip and so we went to Brick Farm again. Fortunately the fishing wasn't quite as challenging as last time, but it was still warm and sunny. It was a great pleasure to socially distance once again!


12 July 2020 - Brick Farm

A warm sunny day made the fishing rather challenging for most but a competent few managed to catch, primarily in the earlier part of the morning. It was good to see a good turnout and it was especially good to be fishing as a club again.


22 March 2020 - Arlington

This was to be the first leg of the bank competition, but we will have to see how the year progresses before we can decide how the competitions will work this year. It was a sunny day with a strong NE wind, and the fishing was tough.


16 February 2020 - Duncton Mill

Our visit coincided with that of storm Dennis, keeping a few people at home. It was certainly raining, but the wind wasn't at all troublesome. And there was excellent fishing.
