Membership Types
Whether it's a still water filled with either Carp or mixed coarse fish, a specialist water with a small head of specimen sized fish or a river teaming with Barbel, Grayling, Chub or Trout, Lymm Angling Club has waters for you. 

 

The most frequently asked question from prospective new members is "What type of membership do I need?" So below we've tried to summarise each membership class and which waters that allows you to fish.

What is an Overstamp?

This can be purchased separately or with the RESTRICTED - Intermediate Including Overstamp, BAND E - Senior Including Overstamp or BAND C - Pensioner or Concession Including Overstamp, only pensioners aged over 70 will receive a free Overstamp, this applies to both existing pensioners and future qualifiers.
