The Club’s Annual General Meeting will be held on 27 September 2017 at 7.30pm, at the Laisterdyke Cricket Club, Broad Lane, Bradford BD4 8PA. All BCAA members are urged to attend – this is your chance to add your say about the running of the club, and to vote upon changes to club rules for 2018 and beyond. A bar is available and refreshments will be served. You can see the AGM agenda and Propositions by clicking HERE
Due to a reported outbreak of KHV at a non-BCAA fishery in Bradford, please will all anglers stop using keepnets on all BCAA stillwaters until further notice. Please also ensure that all other tackle, nets, mats etc. are 100% dry before entering BCAA fisheries. Further updates will be posted when known.

2017 Memberships now available. We don’t have a Waiting List!

PLEASE NOTE: The Highways Agency has placed a Combination Padlock on the gate to the entry of our Langthorpe fishing. The padlock code can be obtained from the General Secretary – see his contact details – and will also be published in the 2018 yearbook.  Anglers wanting to fish Langthorpe are advised to get the code before they go fishing, to save a possible wasted journey if the General Secretary cannot take their last-minute call.

Bradford City Angling Association
Don’t let the name confuse you. Bradford City Angling Association does have fishing a short bus ride from the centre of Bradford in Yorkshire. But a quick look at Our Fisheries will show you just how many other fishing waters we have, scattered throughout the Yorkshire Dales.

Is your interest in catching a 20lb carp from the Association’s own lakes? Is it Match fishing or trying to outwit the trout on one of our fly-only river beats?

You might even try for a salmon or sea trout on our own stretch of the River Ribble. Whatever you want, we have fishing for you.

Are you planning a visit to Yorkshire, or are you a genuine ‘Tyke’ who normally fishes day-ticket waters?

Whichever, why not Join Online or contact us for information and details about the Club? If you’d rather not buy on-line, use the Application Form

Membership costs not much more than you might pay for just a couple of days’ fishing on a typical trout or coarse fishery but gives you access to all our waters for a full 12 months (subject to the close season).

We also have Guest Tickets, for members to take a friend to try a fishery or two.

We have a thriving Fly-Fishing Section, which runs an Open Day at the waterside for anglers new to using the fly; and a well-established and thriving Match Section.

Regular working parties work to keep our Waters in tip-top order.
