BEWL BRIDGE FLYFISHERS' CLUB
The Bewl Bridge Flyfishers' Club was started in the mid 1970s, during the construction of Bewl Bridge Reservoir and before it opened to the public. In the 1990s the reservoir was renamed Bewl Water, however the club chose to retain the full name of Bewl Bridge in its title and it has since grown to become the largest fly fishing club in the country boasting a membership that exceeds 500 and has done for over 10 years. The club is run by a committee of nine volunteers, and liaises closely with Bewl Water's management on all matters related to fishing for trout at Bewl Water, with Bewl Bridge Flyfishers' Club also represented on two specialist separate committees, one for fishing and the other for all Bewl Water users.
The club offers full annual membership and members receive six copies of the much loved and looked forward to club magazine, the Bewl Angle. This is packed full of articles about how, when and where to fish at Bewl, including tactics for both boat and bank fishing, plus dates and information about events throughout the season. Some of these events will be fishing days organised by and exclusively for the membership, offering opportunities to fish with Bewl experts, to meet other members and learn more about both Bewl and our sport generally.
Being a member of Bewl Bridge Flyfishers' Club entitles you to a number of benefits including third party insurance whilst fishing, exclusive access to club car parks in various locations around Bewl's banks and discounts in local tackle shops and the Bewl fishing lodge.
