24/03/2020 Club Announcement

Please note the Government statement of 23 March  and the subsequent Angling Trust advice. All Eaton Flyfishers’  waters are closed to fishing with immediate effect until further notice.  Please follow government advice during this difficult period.


Eaton Flyfishers (Formerly Buglawton Trout Club) have been fishing the River Dane near Congleton in Cheshire for over a century.

The Club has over four miles of superb river fishing in one of the most picturesque parts of Cheshire. The club has 50 members and is run by an enthusiastic committee who are all avid fishermen.

Fishing is with fly only and barbless hooks are recommended.

The Hillmoor Beat and the lower part of the Bank Beat are well stocked, generally with fish up to 35 cm.

The river rises close to the source of the River Goyt just to the south west of Buxton, on Axe Edge Moor. Flowing south-west, it forms county borders for around 10 miles (16 km) before flowing west through Congleton and past Holmes Chapel.
