Members we have a set Date for our annual trip to the MBK coloured Ponds Rake, Sunday 1st July it has been a success over the past three years and fun day for all to catch some nice specimens on two lakes exclusive to us HorizonDAC. If you are interested in coming along see Derek his contact details are under the match section or Speak to Sue down the club on a Thursday, there is a token fee of £5 for each Angler. Associates are reminded we will need a few to assist with these anglers who cannot get the gear to the lakes, and may need assistance when landing that huge specimen Carp that all will envy.

Please feel free to put any questions to any of the committee team. It's a Members not for profit Charity/club and the team want to run it for the benefit of you, the members. Let's hear from you.
So Anyone wishing to help further within the Club should speak to a committee member, as various posts are available like Fundraisers and other Committee posts or in the sub Committee status. Volunteers are always welcome from outside of the club if anyone finds they have a spare few hours and enjoy Angling or just have time to help with Admin duties, please contact The Committee click here

Next Work Party (weather permitting) 10th June

If you have an Hour or more to spare then support your Club this winter by helping out clear some debris from the Lakes and banks leading to a safer more comfortable Angling experience, so rather than leave it to someone else come along and help out. The committee does not wish to make it mandatory within the rules as we would prefer it to be voluntary, so please don't leave it to someone else to do as they are our Lakes and need maintenance to be kept pristine and safe not only for us but the Disabled and Able alike who fish them, and would like to keep it that way.

Please let us know by using the "click Me" button below if you wish to attend as we supply Tea/Coffee or cold drinks if you prefer and Bacon Rolls to those who turn up, as every little helps keep it safe for others.   click Me

Testimonial

When the Horizon Angling Club for the disabled first contacted WetWheels in 2015 it was always going to be the perfect partnership. The Horizon AC ticked all the boxes for our WetWheels operation. A group of enthusiastic, friendly and down to earth guys who love their boat fishing going out on our fully accessible power catamaran with an owner and skipper who also love fishing was always going to work. We at WetWheels have been looking for a club just like Horizon to use our specialist facilities on board and now we are looking forward to many more successful fishing trips in 2016 and beyond.

So welcoming and they couldn't be more helpful. I can drop my disabled husband there, knowing they will help him if he needs help. And it's great for him to be amongst like minded people, enjoying the outdoors.

not listening to the club instructor ended up with this poor fella having a hook bum as it is known in the sport.
