About us

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.

Errwood Fly Fishing Club currently maintains a waiting list for membership. To join the waiting list please download, complete and post this PDF file.
