Welcome to Red Circle Angling Club and Nature Reserve. We are an oasis in the city, a place to come and fish in a secure environment surrounded by nature. Our ethos is ecocentric with fish care paramount. Our habitat is pristine with respect for it and fellow anglers a prequisite for membership. We strive to improve year on year with professional bodies such as the Environmental Agency and The Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust being but two that have made vital contributions in recent years. Indeed we welcome suggestions from any of our members, some of whom have a lifetime of experience to draw upon.
The club was set up predominantly as a mixed fishery. Fish that are available are Pike, Bream, Carp, Chubb, Roach, Tench, Rudd, Perch, and Gudgeon. Basically anything that swims in the River Soar swims in the basins.
There are two 'basins' which have a total of 35 pegs, and 5 additional pegs which are on the River Soar. One of the basins has an area set aside as a nature reserve, as agreed with Leicester City Council.
Our members enjoy a stress-free fishing experience with the site being behind locked gates. Junior members are positively encouraged and parents can be assured that, as far as possible, they will be in a safe fishing environment. We have a fully qualified coach who organises and runs the junior matches and can be contacted by anyone who needs any assistance with their fishing technique.
As part of the membership package we have third party insurance for members fishing anywhere in the world.
During the main fishing season we have fishing matches on selected Sundays (draw 9am, fish 10am to 3pm) and Wednesdays (draw at 5pm, fish 6pm to 9pm) for adult members. Also, see the Information page on this site and our Facebook. All adult matches are Open matches and are usually held on the last Sunday of the month.
