The Tring Anglers The Tring Anglers is a small and friendly coarse fishing club based in north-west Hertfordshire. Formed in 1947, their open membership policy still provides access to a wide variety of fisheries in the area. Eleven miles of fine canal fishing, small and large river fisheries along with lakes and ponds cater for all coarse angling disciplines. Pay-on-the-bank day tickets are available on nearly all of their canal stetches and several of the club's fisheries have facilities for the disabled angler. In recent seasons Tring Anglers have enjoyed a venue-sharing arrangement with Barnet and District Angling Club, and they are affiliated to the Milton Keynes AA and [from the 2004/05 season] to Reading & District AA.

From Spring 2005 The Tring Anglers have affiliation to the Oxford & District Anglers Association which gives their members full access to several stretches of the Thames around Oxford, some excellent ponds on the Oxford Canal and a short piece of the River Cherwell AT NO EXTRA COST !

During the last few years carp in excess of 30lbs have been reported from their main canal and Aylesbury Arm fisheries. Chub, which were stocked a few years ago have too been showing in the main canal and the Arm with pleasure catches of 20lb reported. In 2002 they also stocked tench up to 7lb in the Arm and these show during the warmer months. Their members-only lake fishery at Rislip Farm is now finished and fishing well, with bream of over 4lb and tench over 5lb coming out regularly. The river fisheries have not been without their moments, with chub to over 4lbs appearing regularly from the River Thame and small barbel showing too.

Turnford Angling Consortium

Turnford Angling Consortium [TAC] is one of the oldest coarse fishing clubs in the Lee Valley. It was formed by several clubs coming together to jointly manage the Slipe Lane Pits in Wormley, Herts with the Lee Valley Regional Park Authority. The pits consist of four mixed coarse fisheries offering something for everyone. With extensive stocking and landscaping, a huge investment is being made in the fishery to provide plenty of sport for anglers of all abilities.

Railway Pit
Some five acres in size, this is predominantly the Carp lake. Specimens grow to over 30lb with a good number of 20lb fish. It also contains a good head of other species, with Bream and Tench breaking 10lbs, and an abundance of Roach, Rudd and Perch. Some large Pike are also present.

Lea Pit
A clear water presenting a challenge to the keener angler. Presentation is the key in the Summer, when the weed grows. Bream and Tench are present to double figures, with a healthy population of Rudd and Perch. Pike to 20lbs+ also inhabit the lake.

Marsh Pit
Generally shallow, with a labyrinth of islands, arms and reed lined bays, there is something to please everyone. Densely populated with Rudd and Tench, this is what Summer fishing is all about. Even in Winter good catches can be had.

Boot Pit
Small Carp are the main feature, with the occasional double thrown in. There are also Tench a plenty, and two shoals of Bream. Rudd, Perch and Crucian Carp make up the remainder of the inhabitants. Lillypads and reed-lined margins make the ideal pleasure venue for all abilities, and juniors are especially welcome.

Clubs wishing to join the Consortium can contact them via their website or the Consortium Secretary on 01992 467585. Individual membership of the Consortium can be obtained through a variety of Angling Clubs or Societies. Click here for a full list.

To reflect the needs of the modern angler the Consortium has decided to open the fishery all year from 2005. Existing TAC tickets will be valid until 15th June 2005, but only with a current valid club membership and photocard. Please ensure that you carry these with you at all times as bailiffs will be specifically asking to see them.
