Please note I am working on this web site all the time due to the last one been hacked so please bear with me
Collingham Angling Association is run entirely by volunteers has a constituted membership of 300 full fee paying members made up from seniors, juniors and Senior Citizens.
The success and growth of the association is a result of many hours of hard work and tireless effort by local anglers with a common interest.
The backbone being developed by residents in the village and surrounding area and support of local farmers.
The aim of our game is to promote fair angling and protect the country side, improve our skills to catch more fish and enjoy ourselves with fellow anglers !!
Our playground is the Tidal Trent below Cromwell weir and some of the local reclaimed gravel workings.
The Lower River Trent at Collingham was once the match angler’s Paradise. However, these days it’s the place to go if you want to bag up with barbel. Long gone are the days when you could “frame”with nets of roach and chub in a mixed bag or depend on the skimmers and slabs net. You can run a groove with a stick float and catch but not on a level playing field. Take your casters, maggots and hemp but boilies and pellets are a must.
Specimen hunters love the place, but so do plenty of ‘in the know’ pleasure anglers and match men, all of whom have barbel on the brain! Not to mention “catfish”
The Trent below Collingham weir is tidal and although the rise and fall of water twice per day is fairly slight and it is still noticeable but does vary in both time of the day and height. Viewing the fairly featureless stretch below the bubbling white water “the oven” of the weir pool is a daunting prospect. Think big and positive.
Temporary membership of the association for the Fleet and the Trent may be obtained by the purchase of a day ticket from the Bailiff on the bank or by the way of a match permit issued by the secretary in advance No temporary membership is available on the private pegs.
No person shall fish from the wall at Cromwell Weir.
