Village stretch at Broughshane

Where to fish.

                       Club waters extend from the Fork Bridge on the Cushendall Road east of Broughshane to Correll's Bridge near Ballymena ( about 7 miles ). Please note you will need a current DAERA rod licence together with a Club Membership Card or Day Ticket.

                      First time visitors will probably find the "village stretch" between the Knockan and Tullymore Bridges in Broughshane a convenient place to start. There is easy access via a concrete path and car parking adjacent both bridges. For these reasons this stretch is particularly suited to anglers with disabilities. There are four stands for disabled anglers and the Club is registered with the British Disabled Angling Association.
