Fenton and District, around stoke and trentham, to Dilhorn lakes(ponds), Overflow next to the stadium...some lovely venues but I haven't fished then since moving to Finland ?. Licence can be obtained from Dolphin tackle.
Contact @T K on here for details of the Wyrley & Essington Canal at Pelsall and also the Cannock Extension that runs 1.6 miles from the A5 down to the junction with the Wyrley & Essington Canal at Pelsall Common.
I had been a member for nearly 18 years before I moved to Finland. It is/was a very decent, small club, and some lakes such as Dilhorne and others were well kept. It was sad to see 'the overflow' next to Britannia stadium be ran into the ground and fish moved out to their other venues, the canal allways offers some nostalgia and great fishing, with carp being resident in various stretches.
Angling is hugely popular! Winter To The Summer - Izaak Walton Stafford Anglers Association in Staffordshire offers an extremely varied programme no matter what time of year it is plus some of the best pools and waters in Staffordshire.
As already mentioned Cannock/Brownhills area you have Blackfords and TKs clubs, Stoke a fair few to go at, Burton on Trent you have Burton mutual anglers, Tamworth you have LambAC and Lichfield has Kingfisher Club.....
