The Club’s aim is to provide quality fishing at affordable prices. We are not an exclusive syndicate although we do expect and require our members to behave at all times in the best interests of the club and strictly adhere to the club rules and etiquette.

Founded in 1941 with just six members, the Club now boasts a flourishing membership of over 2000, with members from every walk of life and from many parts of the world. Membership is open to persons  aged 12 years and over. The Club is actively involved in habitat restoration, aquatic entomology and a number of community activities.

Membership is available in the two categories of Game and Coarse.  Full membership is available to all who reside within a 14 mile radius of the Salisbury Cathedral Spire. Anyone living outside this area may apply for Associate Game or Coarse membership and would not hold any voting right within the constitution. There is a waiting list in operation for both Full and Associate Game memberships.

Despite its diverse membership base, the Club remains firmly in the hands of local anglers with a strong management committee elected every five years to ensure continuity.

The Club employs a general manager and 3 full time keepers who are responsible for the running of the club and management of the fisheries. These are ably assisted by a hard working party of volunteer bailiffs and members. Should you decide to take up membership, have some time available and would like to help look after your fisheries our office would be pleased to hear from you
