    Hello everyone, I am new here and just wanted to let everybody know about our new Angling club thats just started.

    Victoria Mews Angling Club is a newly formed club always looking to take on new members, we have recently acquired a stretch of canal on the Walsall Canal between Midland road and Willenhall road. The stretch of canal can accomodate 30 plus anglers fishing at any one time. The stretch has proven of late to produce some good weights in our weekly competitons and many species of fish which include Roach, Rudd, Perch, Bream, Carp, Tench, Pike, Eels, Gudgeon, Pike and Chub. Some specimen fish have been caught including Tench to 8lb, Bream to 7lb, pike to 22lb and Carp to 12lb, nets of 20lb plus are regular and weights in excess of 50lb in a 5 hour session have been recorded. The stretch is located in a peaceful and tranquil part of the Walsall Canal and has many features to fish to such as overhanging willow and birch trees and lilly pads to the near and far bank. The near and far shelf has a depth of 2ft with a depth of 5ft down the middle. Barges pass occasionally but are not a nuisance. Parking is available at various locations and there are a few places where access is possible direct to the pegs. There is also a cafe approximately 200 meters away on The Green darlaston which is located athe bottom of Midland road next to the roundabout the cafe opens at 08.00 everyday. We are a fully insured angling club insured by the Angling Trust.

    Thank You for reading

    Bloody hell, an angling club in Darlo! Used to fish your stretch when I was a nipper. The demise of all the heavy industry has had a good effect on the cuts all around Darlo, Moxley, Walsall etc. The Tipton Taliban stretch on the Birmingham cut is fantastic for bags of Tench, whilst the Wombourn/Bratch stretch on the Staffs Worcester has got to be the best Chub canal fishing anywhere.
    Good luck with your new stretch and club And watch out for them Darlo lads!
