About the NNAC

The Northern Neck Anglers Club  is dedicated to educating anglers about saltwater fishing techniques throughout the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula areas of the Chesapeake Bay. Regular meeting and correspondence allows members to share information regarding the latest tackle, marine hardware/software, bait selection, techniques and fishing hot spots.

Member meetings are held during the fishing season. Guest speakers provide timely expertise. In 2015, the club hosted seven member tournaments (seven different species).  During 2016, the club has again scheduled seven member tournaments (eight different species).

An “Angler of The Year” contest is conducted each year with points awarded based on tournament results. Other events such as a club picnic, charter outings and seminars may be hosted by the club throughout the year.
