The club was founded In 1977 by a group of anglers whom got together to form
Pendle Anglers to promote the sport of angling at all levels and provide opportunities
for recreation and competitionc, To assist members and participants in their various
forms of involvement in angling also they could join Burnley Centre which was affiliated
to the Northern Anglers Association to fish the canals around Burnley
In the 1990’s Burnley Centre was disbanded due to the increase in rent for the
canals and the decline in membership. Pendle Anglers wanted to somehow keep the
name of Burnley Centre going so the Club had a meeting and after a long discussion
it was agreed that the new name of Pendle Anglers would now be called Pendle, Burnley
and District Anglers Association.
The club is based in the northwest of England and caters for all pleasure, specimen
and match anglers. The membership is open for all ages from juniors through to Pensioners.
The club controls 5 still waters which are all filled with a good head of mixed
coarse fish with Bream 6lb+, Pike 10lb+, Roach, Perch, Tench, and specimen carp
30lb+ also 3 stretches of the river Calder with Chub, Dace, Grayling and Trout.
