Message from the Chairman

It is with deep regret that after 17 years of service to the club that our Treasurer; Les and Club Secretary; Shelia, have decided to resign. As Chairman and on behalf of the committee, I give my sincere thanks for all their hard work and dedication to the club. We would not be the club we are today without them.

The Club will remain open under the current committee with these key roles undertaken on an interim basis by, myself, with the assistance of Steve and Ian. There will be no more membership applications taken at this time until these roles have been re-elected at an EGM. The date for this EGM will be posted on the website and Facebook as soon as it been arranged.

Club Matches: From the 24th July the remaining matches published in the club book will be run by either Myself, Steve or Ian. Thank you all for your understanding.

David Leeson - Chairman

Red Circle Angling Club, Thurcaston Road, Leicester

How the club was formed

Red Circle Angling Club was set up on the site of an old marina and accessed via Thurcaston Road, Leicester in 2002.  It was conceived jointly by the Leicester City Council and the Environment Agency, who constructed swims and paths.  A committee was formed to manage the water and to be responsible for forming an angling club on the site.   The club has a strong committee who meet on the second Monday of every month at Birstall Social Club, Wanlip Lane, Birstall, Leicester to discuss any issues that may arise with either members or with the fishing water.  The club is required to observe a Closed Season and this is from March 15th to June 15th inclusive every year. 


The club was set up predominantly as a a mixed fishery. Fish that are available are  Pike, Bream,Carp,  Chubb, Roach, Tench, Rudd, Perch, and Gudgeon (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, who are the landlords of the area.


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   All match dates are noted in the membership books.  Also, see the Information page  on this site.  All adult matches are Open matches and are usually held on the last Sunday of the month.


In 2013 we resurrected the annual Fur & Feather match for prizes and this match will be held near Christmas, the date can be found in the membership book and will be put onto our Facebook page.
