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.

Horizon Angling Club is fantastic, they allow people with disabilities to partake in angling and have regular events, what a great bunch!

Left till Meeting 02

2nd Match at Three Oaks fisheries 19th March

3rd Match at Havant Lakes 07th April

4th Match at Hambrook Lakes 16th April


Some of you may already know that our Match Organiser Derek has decided to step down after four years in service to Horizon. Derek having made it what it is today has decided to step back now and allow someone else to carry on in his footsteps so he can concentrate on fishing rather than other members fishing. and will see him around the bank joining in as a Full member competing against you all as normal so beware his name is on top of the list for the last few years so still a force to recon with.


Please get use to Dipping your nets, slings and mats before fishing basic prevention all anglers should be doing. In the event of no Dipping Tanks all nets and Gear should be Completely dry not damp before fishing commences to aid Bio-Security measures.


This year, due to a fewer number of Associate Members who fish Match Meetings, we will run one course Match Meeting Competition League which will be open to all members whether Full or Associate. There will be a new Havant Lakes Cup which, we feel, will be advantage to all members who can only make it to weekend match meetings.


Any fish deemed to small to weigh individually, will now be counted as one ounce(2 ounces for 2015 and 2016). A small wet Cotton bag with a handle can easily be used to weigh a small fish safely before being returned to the water unharmed. (1st one provided by the club please Ask Dave or Sue for one if lost you will need to replace it as the use of Plastic bags are now banned by Hambrook and HorizonDAC)


To help prevent the transfer of disease between waters, please remember to dip your Nets, Mats and Slings before going to your next session


Please follow any instruction given by on-site Bailiffs and match organisers and remember to take all litter home with you after fishing.


Any Questions, Let the Match Team know using the form below.

"Potential new Members should note that they would need to arrange their own transport to and from matches and those requiring a Carer would need to be accompanied by a helper as Horizon's volunteers cannot provide personal care."
