Match guidance has been updated to reflect the measures in place for matches conducted under the COVID-19 pandemic.

Included in your membership is access to match fishing with the club.

We run an informal Evening Match Series and a Senior Championship during the coarse season. This is a great opportunity to meet fellow club members and enjoy an added aspect to the sport of fishing.

No money or prizes (other than any club records) are offered, just bragging rights down the pub (assuming you’re old enough to be in a pub!).

Typically matches are held at the Nutford Farm stretch of the Stour, please confirm prior to arrival. Draw to take place bank side. Club members only, no match fee. Please bring valid Blandford & District Angling Club membership card and valid EA licence.

We have some simple rules to follow, above and beyond those in the club book

– Relax, this is an informal ‘match’, a bit of interclub competition, not a national or big ticket qualifier

– One (1) line in the water only during the match

– No bait to enter the water before “all-in!” is called

– Any issues with pegging to be resolved with Match Secretary as soon as possible after draw

– Call “fish on!” if you happen to be in the process of landing as “all-out!” is called

– Ideally keep nets are left bank side for as long as possible before “all-in” in order to dry them out (preventing disease spreading)

– Coarse fish count only, please return all other fish as soon as landed


Evening Series; 5 matches, starting on the first Tuesday after the start of the season

Senior Championships; 5 matches, starting on the last Sunday in July (except for August as to avoid the bank holiday weekend)
