About Us

COLWYN BAY VICTORIA SEA ANGLING CLUB was founded over fifty years ago by a small group of keen sea anglers. The CBVSAC has grown into the largest sea angling club in North Wales. The club name was formed from the early days when the majority of its competitions were held on the Colwyn Bay Victoria Pier.

The club has a licensed club house run by the bar steward Steve Tinkler.  It is situated on Rhos Promenade opposite the large breakwater by Rhos Point and the bar is available during normal licensing hours.  There is also a social section, which is run by Colwyn Sea Sports, where the social members can make use of all the facilities available.

Angling sections are now based mainly on shore and boat angling and both sections are very strongly represented at competition level.

The club holds open shore competitions throughout the year, the culmination of which is the closed club Fur & Feather towards Christmas when a vast array of prizes, mainly Christmas fare, is on offer to the competing members.  This is a very popular event where almost every angler takes home anything from a large cash pool to an article of festive food.

The boat section runs a summer league from April through to November each year and is well supported from boats as far away as the Wirral and Manchester. Again the section runs a Fur & Feather when the aim is to ensure that every angler has an equal chance of winning and there is usually a prize for every competing member. Most of the boat section league competitions take place around Anglesey, The Llyn Peninsular or in the Menai Strait. The venues being dependant on the prevailing weather conditions on the day of the match. In recent years,  a larger number of the matches have been held from Colwyn Bay, which is a very popular venue providing many different species of fish this section desires. The last match from Colwyn Bay saw 25 different species recorded!

It is also worth noting that the Welsh Boat Home International Team selected to fish in Ireland 2002 was made up entirely from members of the CBVSAC boat section. The club was also responsible for the organization of the very popular Colwyn Bay Bass Festival for over thirty years. Unfortunately this festival no longer takes place.

It is an Angling Club run by it's members for it's members.  

It is a proud club which has produced some well known and successful match anglers. 

The club encourages all gender and age groups to participate in club activities fairly and within any regulations imposed upon it and expects members to honour the clubs name whilst taking part in any fishing activity.

Membership fees, £15.00 plus £2.00 joining fee, are due from the 31st March each year, but new members joining after 31st December each year are entitled to immediate membership for the remainder of the year and also for the following year.
