Welcome to the Website of Ryburn and Halifax Angling Society.

Welcome to 2019 everyone! The club in in a very healthy position and we are grateful for all your support during these trying times. 

Due to rising rents and costs the subscription will rise to £30 for adults and £15 for OAPs and concessions. Junior subscriptions will remain at £5 per year for 16-18 year olds, and free for under 16s. The yearbook will now change to a rulebook that will be kept for the next 5 years and a receipt issued upon re-application - just pop this into your rulebook. There will be a new book detailing maps and locations of our waters available from late January at a cost of £5. 
Both the river and canal have been in excellent form, and the dam is into its 4th year of stocking after the major banking works took place. Fresh stocks of common mirror carp along with bream and roach have been introduced this year.
A health and safety issue with the Council has forced us to remove all signs that are nailed or screwed to trees. This will mean new signage will be installed onto poles or posts in the future. Again, European signs will be in place.
The Thursday Evening League has been a great success and will be up and running again in 2019.
Our three bailiffs, Tim, John and Paul will be up and down all year round. Feel free to have a chat and introduce yourselves. Have a great year. Remember to report anyone (or anything!) not fishing to the rules to the club secretary.
