Mid Northants is a welcoming, inclusive and active fly-fishing club. Centered around Northampton we are fortunate to have ready access to the Midlands Reservoirs. We have around 100 members with a wide range of fishing experience from novice to past England team members.
MNTFA is one of the oldest fly fishing clubs in the country having started in 1952 to improve trout fishing for local people. Our thriving club helps anglers of all experience levels catch more fish and enjoy the great sport of fly fishing.
We organize an impressive range of activities throughout each year (COVID restrictions permitting):
Monday Socials – Chat & Fly-Tying
Most Monday evenings from 7:30pm a few members can be found in The Pioneer. Click here for details. Mainly a talking shop about fishing and sometimes including fly tying. Inevitably the Saints current successes and assorted soccer teams are discussed.
Tuesday Socials – On the water
Every Tuesday in April, May, June, September, and October, we have a coordinated social visit to a fishery. All boats fish independently, and start and finish when they wish. The social part happens over an agreed lunchtime where tactics and flies are shared. Full details can be found here.
We have a varied competition calendar with 9 events scheduled in 2021. These will be on the local Anglian reservoirs of Grafham, Pitsford and Ravensthorpe plus Rutland, Draycote and Eyebrook. All competitions are listed in our calendar.
In November, December, January and February we hold a varied Winter
Programme. The venue and speakers will be published here once available. A
typical evening involves a speaker from the angling world talking tactics and
techniques, answering questions from the audience and often tying a few flies.
We also have a raffle and sometimes free chips during the break.
Once a month between April and October we hold an open afternoon on a
Saturday in the Pitsford Lodge clubhouse. In addition to all members, we
welcome anyone interested in starting fly fishing or joining our club. Here we
offer fishing, casting, fly tying, rod building and boat handling tuition. Further
details can be found here.
Coordinated visits to fisheries further afield are currently being planned. This
will include both reservoirs and rivers. Details here.
Any club member can request a half or full day fishing with one of our more
experienced members. This is limited to club members to provide insurance.
Further information and contact details can be found here.
