Errwood Fly Fishing Club

Errwood Fly Fishing Club (EFFC) is a members’ club founded in 1970, soon after the River Goyt dam was constructed to provide drinking water for Stockport. The reservoir occupies 85 acres in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the Peak National Park between Buxton, Whaley Bridge and Macclesfield.

Fishing rights to Errwood Reservoir include the three feeder streams that form the headwaters of the Goyt.

As of 2016 the Club also has access for members to Fernilee Reservoir.

There is ample parking and plenty of fishing just a few yards away. For anglers who do not enjoy a long walk, the close proximity of a gently sloping bank is much appreciated. Friendship and a chat about angling supplement a fine fishing venue.

Joining Errwood is easy, just have a chat with one of our Committee members or use the Club's contact page for any queries relating to club membership.

Quality Fly Fishing!

EFFC Club Rules & Conduct

As with any club there are rules and regulations that we have to adhere to for legal, insurance, environmental and administrative reasons, but also rules we have put in place to maximise your day’s enjoyment while offering a fair angling experience for both members and visitors.

Before fishing please familiarise yourself with the Club’s Rules and Constitution and also read the EFFC Code of Practice.

EFFC cannot survive without the support and efforts of its members. We have a friendly atmosphere within the club and a great relationship with the Errwood Sailing Club and the Buxton Sea Cadets , with whom we share access to the water. If anyone is interested in assisting with the running of the club please contact any of the club bailiffs or committee members.
