Tanfield Angling Club is the oldest private fly fishing club in Wensleydale.  

Great Fly Fishing

Excellent fly life and water provide superb north country river fishing. 


On Saturday 9th June 2018 members lent a helping hand to clear the river banks.


We limit membership to allow privacy and solitude. If you are interested please contact the Secretary.



We are committed to help preserve and improve the river environment, assisted by our own full-time River Keeper .
