Formally known as Scunthorpe Pisces Angling Club,
and Scunthorpe and District Angling Association.
We have now joined forces with Scunthorpe and District Angling Association to give all anglers of all abilities a wider range of flowing and stillwaters to fish, and have a stronger voice and arm in the Anglers world.
The Scunthorpe Pisces Angling Club is the new name adopted by the former Scunthorpe Police Angling Club. The club was formed back in the 1970’s when a group of local police officers took up the lease of the farm reservoir in Lodge Lane, Flixborough from the Sheffield Estate, the owners of vast areas of land around Scunthorpe, including local landmark and beauty spot Normanby Hall and Country Park.
The club was originally a section of the police sports and social club, in the days when most police stations still boasted a licensed bar and, often, a games room and snooker table. .In the early days the club was only open to police staff and was supported by the parent club. As such bars and social clubs fell out of favour with the hierarchy of the police forces around the country, the parent club folded, leaving only those sections which could survive without the financial backing of the social club. The angling section at Scunthorpe was able to carry on trading, but only by opening up the membership to those outside the police.
