Welcome to Tiverton & District Angling Club. We offer some of the best value coarse fishing in Devon with miles of great sport across several waters. These range from the Grand Western Canal, lakes like Lakeside and Little Yeo, through to river fishing on the Culm at Stoke Cannon.

These waters provide excellent coarse angling for most species, from quality roach fishing, to quality tench, bream, perch, pike and carp.

Tiverton & District Angling Club is also an active club for match fishing in Devon, holding competitions both on our own waters as well as other local club and day ticket venues.

Report for the latest club match held at Avalon now online.
June 8th 2020
Following discussion regarding the clubs match calendar, it has been agreed that matches will resume from the 28th of June at Avalon. Because of this, the points league will be foreshortened to comprise eight matches with the eventual league winner being the person with the best total score from all eight, but must have fished at least five or more.
This years final will be open to anyone who has fished five or more matches and will be held on Longs lake at Summerhayes. This, in turn, means the top 12 qualifier has been cancelled.
This arrangement is subject to any further government intervention.
