The club was formed in 1977 by two keen anglers living in the village. Both have long since left the village, but they got the ball rolling by obtaining agreement from one of our three landowners to fish one particular stretch of the river.

At the time they chose to give the club the name "The Herons", but for many years now the club is simply as the Ixworth Angling Club.

From 1982 onwards the club has been organised and run with a formal Committee, and as of 2017 club members may fish three stretches of the river Blackbourn namely :


The Commister Lane stretch

The 'Booty's Hole'

The Micklemere stretch

In total this means about a mile of the river Blackbourn is available to be fished by members.

The Club runs a series of matches during the season, and an annual charity match on the Sunday a week or two before Christmas. We actively encourage youngsters to join and upon request will endeavour to provide fishing instruction sessions during the Summer months.

The club attempts to issue a newsletter on a regular basis to all members, and the current issue can be viewed by clicking on the link here : Latest issue of Heron News.

Members are most welcome to submit comments or articles to be incorporated in new issues of Heron News. We will also attempt to include copies of digital photographs of any special fish caught by members.

Please forward any draft articles or pictures to the Chairman Peter Hunwick by Email, address -peter.hunwick@btinternet.com Alternatively if you do not possess a home computer you may pass the details to him via his home address in Ixworth, or contact him by telephone. Details can also be passed to any member of the Committee.
