Membership Costs


It is much cheaper than you may think to join Bradford City Angling Association, given the number and the quality of the Waters we have. We try to keep costs down so that everyone can afford to fish our waters – just see below how little it costs to join us!!

If you are aged 17 or more, and were not a member of BCAA in 2020, we will ask you to pay a small joining fee of £15.00. You will also be asked to pay a joining fee if you were a BCAA member in 2020 but do not renew your membership for 2021 by 31 March 2021.
Membership runs from 1 January to 31 December each year. In 2021 the cost of membership is:

Adult: Men and women (aged 17-64 incl) £44.00
Part Year Adult: All Members (no Concessions) – valid from 1 September to 31 December only, including the joining fee of £15.00 £37.00
Concessionary: Men and women aged 65 or over; individuals with a Disability £28.00
Junior : Juniors (aged 16 or under) Free*
Social: An Adult or Concessionary Member can apply for Social Membership of BCAA for another named person. This allows the Social Member to accompany the Adult or Concessionary member when they go fishing, though the Social Member cannot fish and enjoys no other privileges of BCAA membership. Free*
Joining Fee For all members, except Juniors, who were not members in 2020 or who renew membership on or after 1st April 2021 £15.00

You can Join BCAA via the Online Shop or by using an Application Form.

* Unfortunately we must make a small charge of 1p for Junior and Social permits bought through the Online Shop.  This is because the shop cannot handle zero-cost items.

We also sell a number of other items and permits to make your fishing more enjoyable and easier to access. Click on the links below for further details, and to buy these items.

Second Rod Permit : A second rod permit is not required after 1 Jan 2019, and has therefore been withdrawn from sale. not available
