To fish Macclesfield Fly Fishers Club waters you can either apply to the Secretary ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) or purchase a day ticket ( enquire to email@example.com )
If you wish to join the Club you will need an application form from the Secretary . In addition to the annual subscription (2020 fees were set at the Feb AGM at £225) there is a one off joining fee for new members (£100). There are also a limited number of Junior memberships available. Juniors membership (under the age of 16) costs £50 and there is no joining fee. Juniors fishers must be accompanied at all times. All anglers are required to be in possession of a current Environment Agency Licence, available from local Post Offices or the EA website.
A limited number of day tickets are available each day for either Ridgegate Reservoir (£25) or the River Dane, Hug Bridge Stretch (£15) on a first come first served basis. These have proved very popular in the past, (2 fish limit on the Reservoir, catch and release only on the river). All day ticket purchasers will be required to show their EA licence on purchase of day tickets.
The fishery is open for fishing from dawn until one hour after sunset (no night fishing) seven days per week.
