QEII Fish Deaths

A few weeks ago around 30k roach were killed by an unknown source.  After examining the fish the Environment Agency could not find the root cause and if there was contamination to the water it had dissipated when the fish were removed. The EA will set up a permanent monitor and endeavour to replace the fish in the latter part of the year

I’d like to thank everyone for their kind words about my father.

My father passed peacefully in his sleep from a heart condition and pneumonia. The funeral will be held at the West Road Crematorium 9.30 on Tuesday 16th of January.

Special thanks to Geordie and Ian for all the years of taking him the length and breadth of the country.

Could all other fishing clubs be notified if not already done. If you have any photos or stories you like to share please feel free to share or private message.

Thanks Sara and family

Big Al bows out

Another loss to the angling world.  Alan "Big Al" Stevens passed away last night at the age of 84. Further details will appear when updates are received. Alan was a prominent figure in WACAC and the TAA. He supported both organisations in many different ways. Our thoughts are with his family.

John Malone

Family flowers only please donations in lieu may be sent for The Bubble Foundation C/o Melrose Funeral Services, 39 Market Street, Dudley, NE23 7HS.


11th / 12th October 2017 Updated

Sad News

It is with heavy heart that I inform the angling world that John Malone passed away on Monday night. John was a larger than life character who helped make this club what it is today. His relentless work over the years ensured that WACAC remained strong and those who knew him will miss his humour together with his philosophical  approach to life.  Our thoughts are with his wife Ruth, Daughter Leigh, son in law Stephen and grandchildren Brad and Beth (Betty).

Funeral arrangements: Tynemouth Crematorium Wednesday 18th October 3pm

Sad News

It is with heavy heart that the committee has to inform the members of the passing away of Jeff Hedley.  Jeff was a founder member of the club and ex committee man who was both generous and approachable.  He put a lot of time and effort into ensuring the club took the right path and we are eternally grateful for his efforts. He will be sadly missed
