    Hi Jakfish,
    Welcome to the FM Mad-house!
    There are a few on here who have had WAA tickets and can probably give you more up-to-date info on their local waters - and whether they are worth the intro fee as well as the annual fee.

    Depends which side of Warrington you live - but it may be worth your while having a look at Salford Friendly AS About Us who have waters towards Manchester at Irlam - and have a lively Facebook page which discusses access to some of the Mersey-related waters - e.g. the fish-stuffed MSC - which is owned by Peel Holdings who currently ban all fishing on the banks due to the H&S implications of the 'wash' from ships passing along the Ship Canal.

    The other place to have a look at is Sankey Valley Park - the Sankey Canal did have some very good silvers and pike fishing - the fishing rights are run by the local council and several local clubs - you might need to ask around for specific lengths.

    Hello and Welcome to FishingMagic

    Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers.

    Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher's salary. ~

    Greenie62, I would forget Sankey valley park, it is choked with weed,
    The controlling club is Dallam Anglers,who also have Stanners pool in Dallam,this is a small water more suited to juniors,
    WAA have a few waters in Warrington,also the bridgewater canal from preston brook upto Manchester and numerous stretches of rivers both large and small,
    also Sandiway Lakes which is a very good carp and tench water, this is club owned, cost around £250000 about 20 years ago,
    It is a club worth joining,
    I may join Salford now that they have got the old river behind the boathouse pub.
    Jakfish were in warrington are you ?

    Jakfish, you are very welcome to come out fishing with me,
    If you are short of tackle I will be able to kit you out,
    It would have to be a commercial unless you have joined a local club
    such as WAA, Lymm or Wilderspool Anglers,
    The commercials I fish are mainly around the wigan area,
    I got fed up with partridge and brookside,
