The Shakespeare region of the Pike Anglers' club, formerly known as the Solihull & Warwickshire region, is here as a focus point for pike anglers in the South Birmingham, Solihull and Warwickshire areas. We are a friendly bunch who do things a bit differently and most of all enjoy our fishing. Working with other local regions we organise monthly fishing trips throughout the piking season from October to March. We also have plans to invite the occasional guest speaker .

Interested in Joining? Whether you are an old hand or a complete novice, come and join us. You don't have to be a member of the Pike Anglers' Club to come along to our fish-ins, but we hope that you will seriously consider joining.

If you like what you see we hope that you will join The Pike Anglers' Club of Great Britain to gain all the attendant benefits, including the quarterly magazine Pikelines as well as access to its online version - PikeOnLines. By joining you will also be supporting the conservation of pike in our waters.

Contact details are given at the bottom of the website.

We all look forward to seeing you....
