Holt Sea Angling Club History
Club History & Information
The club was initially established way back in September 1953, and was originally known as the Holt Freshwater and Sea Angling Club. Then in 1960 it was renamed the Holt Sea Angling Club and the headquarters was the Kings Head in Holt although the club no longer has a fixed headquarters.
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.
Club matches are normally held every Sunday at various Norfolk venues majority of which are along the shingle ridge on the North Norfolk Coast at Cley, Salthouse, Kelling and Weybourne. The club also fishes at venues in East Norfolk at Trimingham, Bacton, Walcott and Gorleston and in the river Ouse estuary at Kings Lynn as well as the river Yare estuary at Gt. Yarmouth.
