Welcome to Mid Northants Trout Fishers Association. We are one of the oldest fly fishing clubs in the country having started in 1952 to improve trout fishing in the area for local people. Our early history can read by opening the PDF file MNTFA History at the bottom of this page
Today we have some excellent trout fishing facilities and our club is helping anglers to learn more, develop skills and help remind you that the best way to get better is to get out and go fishing.
To help with this, we offer a significant number of benefits to our club members:-
We have a thriving mixed membership of very experienced anglers and relative novices and cater for all. We are a friendly club with members prepared to help one another with all aspects of fly fishing and fly tying.
The MNTFA offers all of this for only £15 per annum,which means you can choose which aspect of the club you want to be part of. It's a bargain,helps fishing and helps you. How can you resist?
If you would like to join us, please complete the application form which you will find in the membership section of the website.
Welcome to the 2017 season.
I hope you have all over wintered well and are ready for the new season.
Now is the time to start dusting off the tackle and evicting the mice from the wellies and net for the coming season. I decided to have a sort out of my tackle box this winter and sort out the fly boxes into some sense of order. After emptying all the small fly boxes out of my waistcoat and box I ended up with far more flies than I realised I had. Now all transferred into larger clear flat file boxes by type of fly all now looks very tidy even if it took an age to do. Also got rid of a lot of flies and boxes via the auction we had during the winter programme.
Over the last few years as a club we have put a lot of energy into coaching beginners which has worked well with several of you joining the club as a result and I hope you are enjoying being with us.
Terry Bayes has fixed up all the club days for the coming season. If you have not fished one of these before they are light hearted, friendly competitions and do not worry if you do not have a boat partner as Terry will fix you up with one. A lot of the days have a meal after which is a great way to meet more people.
I am hoping to get out a lot more this year after my health problems of last year as I missed most of the season and the camaraderie of being out with the club.
Please try and attend the AGM on the 9th March 2017 and hear what the plans are for the coming year plus the chance to put your point of view.
Look forward to seeing you out on the water.
