Holt Sea Angling Club

Welcome to Holt Sea Angling Club website. Holt SAC is a North Norfolk based club fishing the shingle ridge beaches of Cley, Salthouse, Kelling and Weybourne as well as Trimingham, Bacton, Walcott and Gorleston. During the summer months it also fishes the Kings Lynn and Gt. Yarmouth Estuaries and organises trips to places like Orford Island during the year. The club is match orientated with its season starting in April and ending in March the following year. Club matches are generally run on Sundays and occasionally Saturdays with a few on Tuesday evenings during the early summer months. During the 2014-15 season there are 42 weekend and 6 Tuesday evening matches which club members can pick and choose to fish.

We are a very friendly club and new members are made to feel at home straight away. The club caters for members of mixed abilities from the pure novice to highly competitive match anglers in a friendly environment which is the cornerstone of the club. This mix of skills with those that "don't know" rubbing shoulders with those that "do" helps to improve the fishing knowledge of the novice. For some a club match is just about fishing in a friendly environment with friendly guys and gals and for others it is a matter of being competitive and winning; we cater for all types. It is up to each individual member to decide how he or she wishes to take the club to maximise their enjoyment in the sport .

As well as pure club activity, Holt SAC is involved in running many Open matches on the North Norfolk coast and in the Kings Lynn estuary. It is also responsible for running the North Norfolk (teams of 5) Sea League and recently has taken over the organisation of the National Sea League Final. This Final currently alternates between North Norfolk and Eastbourne with around 30 teams participating. The club also runs a 2 day Bass Festival on the North Norfolk shingle during May attracting top anglers from around the country. We are recognised for running well organised matches and have been commended on many occasions for this at a National events.

If you want to join our club and be involved in club activity and these major events please contact the club secretary at holtseaanglers@gmail.com or on 07899032984 or any club committee member.
