Following huge numbers of enquiries about joining the club SAC has stopped taking on new members as the limit, which was agreed at the 2019 AGM of 220, has been reached. The popularity of SAC is phenomenal. The club has grown to become the largest Shrewsbury based angling club within 4 years.
This year SAC has taken on more sections of the River Severn, as well as a pool, and we will review the membership numbers again at the 2020 AGM, it will likely increase. If you would like to join the waiting list for 2021 then please contact the club using one of the methods listed on the Contact Page
Priority for 2021 membership will always be given to existing members, who need to complete their renewal no later than January 31st 2021. After that date, we will take on new members until the limit is reached.
As of 13th May all Shrewsbury Anglers Club fisheries are open as usual. Please remember that the coarse river season does not start until June 16th and coarse fishing, with the exception of Eel fishing, is prohibited until the start of the coarse season. Any angler wishing to fish the river for Eels must ensure they are doing so within the EA regulations and contact the club secretary prior to fishing. Fly fishing for Salmon is currently allowed on the Severn. Salmon anglers must be in possession of an EA Salmon & Migratory Trout Rod License.
Coarse fishing is available to members now on the Lords Pool. A Limit of 10 anglers at a time is in place on the pool. Members wishing to fish Lords Pool must book on prior to fishing. Please contact the secretary directly or as a message on Facebook if you wish to fish the pool. – https://www.facebook.com/shrewsburyanglersclub/
