Welcome to Bollington & Royal Oak Angling Society

The Bollington and Royal Oak Angling Society is a small friendly fishing club located in the village of Bollington, Cheshire.


We have several pools in and around the village including a small stretch of the River Dean.


All are pools are natural waters and contain mainly Roach, Bream, Tench, Perch, Pike, Carp and Gudgeon. These are not to be confused with modern commercial fishery waters which are stocked with a high density of fish.


The club is open to anyone who wishes to join, we have reduced prices for Over 65's, Junior’s and ladies.
