Welcome to The Linton Angling Society Website. This website is designed to give you all the information you need! Anything missing? Please let us know.

We have been established since 1945 and since the club started we have incorporated all aspects of coarse angling. Though we are a small club we cater for all, from beginner to dedicated specialist.

We are based in Linton, situated just on the outskirts of Maidstone, Kent. This makes it an ideal fishing haven for keen anglers in and around Kent. Not only do we offer the picturesque surroundings of our Victorian lake, which boasts the English record pike 40lb 6oz in 1976, we can also offer use of the famous River Medway, Beult & Tiese (approximately 7 miles in total) Fishing venues are also available in Staplehurst Hunton Wateringbury Marden and surrounding areas. Our venues offer easy waters as well as hard waters providing conditions at all levels. Trout fishing is available on the river Tiese.

You don't feel confident fishing for a particular fish? Want to take the children or grandchildren? The Linton Angling Society encourages all members and their guests to enjoy all aspects of fishing including good old-fashioned "Tiddler Bashing". This is guaranteed to put a smile on anyone's face.

Like a bit of competition? So do we. The Linton Angling Society provides regular matches throughout the year. These include active match section and a junior match section. Or what about night fishing? This is guaranteed to keep you on your toes. Just when you are about to drift off you get that all-important bite. Night fishing is available at most of our venues. And don't forget you can always bring a friend. Guest permits are available to all members
