Wetherby and District Angling Club

According to our records, the club was formed in 1914 with 17 members who paid the princely sum of five shillings each per year.

Day tickets cost one shilling.

There are costs for the bus fares to Collingham in the accounts which total 2 shillings 8 pennies for attendance of committee meetings.

Matches were run regularly with results being logged from 1922. There were no weights approaching anywhere near double figures on any venue fished from the Ouse to the Trent until well into the 1960's.

The earliest record book is first dated 14.8.1914 but inside the front cover is written "Book 2A". Where are books 2 or 1 ? if they existed. So it is possible that the club was founded before this date.
