Events and Sessions From 2017

2017 Taster Sessions and Family Days

Here at Todmorden Angling Association our aim is to get more people into fishing and we especially want get more children off their Xbox's, on to seat boxes and out in the fresh air enjoying the wonderful countyside. 

During 2017 we ran 3 taster days throughout the spring and summer, and 2 Family fish Day's on one of the clubs waters, to give anyone a chance to try fishing no matter of age, experience or abilities.  They were very successful days and they ran from 10am till 3pm on the dates listed below.

All sessions were free to attend and all bait and tackle was provided.

There were a number of qualified, insured and experienced coaches on hand to help coach the participants.

You can book on any of the future dates or request any info on future events, just contact any of our coaches or email 

The primary venue is Ramsden Wood Lodge, Ramsden Wood Road, Walsden, Ol14 7UD. (this is subject to change)

If you can’t make any of the sessions or would prefer a more specialised session please contact any of the coaches, they will be willing to help or give you contact details of other coaches based in different areas with different expertise whether it be coarse, game or sea angling.

2017 Review

Below are a few pictures and reviews of some of the sessions we ran throughout the year.

Sept 10th Family Fishing Day

We had an absolutely fantastic day at the Todmorden Anglers Family Fishing Day, 15 children and even a couple of adults turned up in poor conditions to be outside in but great for fishing in and everyone was rewarded with some great fish, we had lots of small fish out and some great fish too that included a 1lb Roach, 3lb Ide but fish of the day had to be Alex Sunderland’s 2lb plus Perch what a specimen it was and a p.b that will be hard to beat!!!

There are some future matchmen on the cards; some of these children were absolute naturals at it. Everyone enjoyed the day and most staying for the full day in the poor weather just shows how much fun they were having and lots asking to come again!! Unfortunately this was the last taster/Family day for 2017 but we will be running more next year from early spring right through the summer till early autumn so keep an eye on the website and our Facebook page for all details or even email us at and we can keep you on record and send you the details when we have them.

Family Fishing Day 23/7/17

What a great day on the bank at Ramsden Wood, we had 10 young anglers turn up 8 that have never fished before and 2 lads returning from the past taster days and even a few of the adults having a go some for the 1st time others that haven’t been for a good while, it’s safe to say everyone enjoyed the day even though the fishing wasn’t as great as in the past few sessions, we put that down to the heavy rain the night before and the bright sunshine throughout the day, but that didn’t stop most managing to catch at least one but the star of the day was 5 year old Aaron who caught 26 fish a mixture of Carp, Roach, Perch, Gudgeon and Ide well done everyone and we hope to see you all again soon… Tight lines.
