KFAC History

Kinver Freeliners Angling Club was formed by a group of match anglers in the early 1970’s with the intention of getting their own water to fish matches on. In those days membership was subject to paying a monthly tote. Matches were fished every other week and the club soon built up a large collection of trophies. In the early 1990’s the tote was terminated in favour of an annual subscription which actually cost around half of what the tote did. To put things in perspective, annual membership worked out at around £84 a year in 1986 and this is now only £95 in 2008 so we think we have held prices quite well.

In the mid 1990’s the match section ceased to exist after numbers dwindled to just half a dozen or so. As the clubs portfolio of waters increased, more pleasure and specimen anglers started to join the club thus giving the club a basis for continuing to exist.

For many years, virtually since it was acquired, Dudmaston Hall has been the Clubs biggest attracter of new members and this is still the case today.

In recent years the fishing, especially on Big pool and Seggy pool has improved dramatically and this has reflected in the popularity of the Club.

As members become accustomed to the fishing at Dudmaston, they start to drift into the other venues and soon they get hooked on the fishing at venues such as Kempsey and Riverlands farm which was only recently acquired (June 2007).

We aim to provide ever better facilities for our members and the merry band of volunteers who run the Club, the Committee will always try its best to improve where possible. One instance of this is the recent breakthrough in obtaining permission to night fish for members at Wick Grange.

Kinver Freeliners like to think that it has a wide diversity of waters for its members to fish and should you decide to join our Club we hope that you will find this to be the case. There is enough to keep most anglers interested for many many years and as you will know, things are constantly changing providing ever changing challenges for the thinking angler.
