Evesham Jubilee Angling Society est. 1897
Evesham Jubilee is one of the oldest fishing clubs in the area. We have been running and maintaining the Jubilee Fishery, nr Bishampton, Worc's since 2002. We regularly have 15+ members fish our matches, mainly at the Jubilee Fishery, our home club water but also on other stillwaters and rivers in the area. At our fishery members can fish as much as they wish and this works out at less than a fiver month. Compare this with other venue's day tickets costing around £9.00 for a days fishing, makes joining Evesham Jubilee great value for money! To join see Membership fee tab or contact the club on 07367117041
Update 07/01/2021 Limited fishing allowed if you are Local
Please see update
The main points are NO match fishing. You can only fish local waters which are described as within the district of a fishery.
Statement from the Angling Trust: Update January 7th 2021
The Government have now formally responded to the representations made by the Angling Trust. We have promoted the huge benefits of fishing on individual health and wellbeing and have been able to present a case to which the Government have listened. On this basis I am pleased to announce that fishing will be permitted during the third national lockdown in England.
"fishing is allowed as exercise so long as participants adhere to the rules on staying local, gathering limits, social distancing and limiting the time spent outdoors"
This has also been confirmed by DEFRA:
"Cabinet Office have now officially confirmed that angling / fishing (incl. sea fishing off private boats, water sports) can be considered exercise and are hence permitted."
We have worked extremely hard to reach this position and we as anglers have a duty to abide by the strict conditions under which fishing is once again permitted. With infection rates and death tolls rising we must stick to the Government's rules and ensure that angling remains part of the solution and does not cause problems.
Please bear in mind these key points which will be reflected in the new Angling Trust guidelines which we will publish shortly:
This is a strictly limited resumption of LOCAL fishing and very different to how we have been allowed to operate since May.
The Government has recognised that fishing can be seen as exercise, which is expressly permitted under the lockdown rules, although outdoor recreation is not.
Organised sporting gatherings are prohibited so no match fishing.
The exercise is limited to once a day so no overnight fishing whatsoever.
We are once again able to enjoy the sport we love at a time when many others cannot and we must ensure that every angler adheres to the rules.
I would ask all anglers who are not members to join the Angling
Trust and give us your support.
We have worked tirelessly to achieve this outcome and that is only possible thanks to the support of our new and existing members. I would ask all anglers who value their ability to go fishing to make the same commitment as your fellow anglers have and join the Angling Trust. We are stronger together!

Stay safe and very best fishes
Chief Executive, Angling Trust
Went to the fishery Saturday and there were 14 fishing. Every person had their membership card and understood the reasons.
Only Bob Evans was fishing Withies and he ended up catching 12
carp with 3 touching double figures. I think that was one more than Ray
Nosworthy had showing the way on Jubilee.
Thanks to everyone keeping to the social distancing and ensuring they have their membership cards on them. It is imperative we have traceability in case someone gets the virus and we need to contact any attendee.
I know there is a lot of debate on match fishing. Strictly
speaking if distancing is observed it ISN'T against the current
restrictions. However we like the vast majority of fisheries are
adhering to the Angling Trust's interpretation and not allowing matches
or keepnets. Things appear to be improving (fingers crossed) and the
next review of the restrictions is 1st June.
Under the Angling Trust's phase 2 competitions will be allowed
so our first match could be an Affordable Open on Wednesday 3rd June
(new price of £10 with the extra £2 going on payouts). This will be
conducted under strict guidelines. Please check the forum, news page or
Facebook on the 1st June to see if the match is going ahead. I will
send a txt to those I think may not have internet access.
Pleasure fishing from Wednesday - Please don't forget to get your club membership and Environment licence
Unless there is a very unlikely event where Parliament reject the prime
ministers new guidelines then pleasure fishing will be allowed from
The main issues for us are:
1. The first visitor in the morning should protect themselves by cleaning hands after opening the gate.
2. Social distancing must be adhered to at all times. (6ft away
from any other person) Fishing equipment or tackle must not be shared.
3. Pleasure fishing only. No keep nets (club rule anyway).
4. High Level of personal hygiene. The club has provided extra cleaning products should members need to use the portaloo.
5. Membership cards must be carried at all times when at the
fishery. The owners have stipulated that we need to be aware of who is
at the fishery. This will help to ensure we can stay safe and will be
vital if we need to trace anyone who comes up on the new tracing app,
soon to be implemented. Also if the unthinkable (and highly unlikely)
thing happens where we get an outbreak at the fishery, then government
officials will expect us to be able to provide a list of members to
contact for any self isolating.
I know quite a few have already joined this year in anticipation of fishing starting, many thanks to those.
If you haven't joined yet then please do BEFORE fishing.
This years membership is only £50 which is great value even though we
have lost a couple of months through the virus. I hope members will
understand that the club still has all its financial commitments and
hasn't received any match funding, which is why the membership must
remain at £50.
Amazing value for money and the feeding of the fish during lock-down will have them in peak condition.
You can renew your membership using most credit/debit cards on Paypal via this link below:
or using a cheque to the treasurer: Bob Evans, 188 The Ridgeway, New End, WORCESTER B96 6NP
If you are sending a cheque please txt Bob on 07747655514 to
inform him it is on its way. This will save any embarrassment if you
are asked for your membership on the bank.
You can also pay any member of the committee.
The government have said that everyone is being looked after financially however we all know governments can stretch the truth. If you are not in a very good financial situation due the virus then please contact myself or Bob in confidence to arrange a payment plan.
Open matches are held regularly at the fishery on Saturdays and an affordable open match on Wednesdays, draw time on a saturday is 9.00am fishing 10.00am - 3.00pm. The affordable open is probably the cheapest match to enter in the Country, (draw 9.30am).
There is no need to book-in for any of our open matches, just turn up (non-members are very welcome) There is generally an average of 12-20 anglers fishing these opens most weeks throughout the year.

Book a match at the Jubilee Fishery
The Jubilee Fishery is available to other angling clubs looking to book matches on any of our three pools, All pegs on each pool or selected pegs can be booked. Considering many commercial fisheries are now charging around £10.00 a peg, which can prove very expensive.
We can offer excellent fishing at a very competive peg fee with average match winning weights ranging from 40-100lb depending on the time of year on the Jubilee and Withies pools. It is advised to book early as many of our visiting clubs decide to return to the fishery once they have fished it
