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 the BCAA Fisheries page 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 contact our Membership Secretary for information and details about joining, Join Online or complete and send us an Application Form now?

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 (apart from the close season, of course).
We also have Guest Tickets, for members to take a friend to look at, and try, a fishery or two.
We have a thriving Fly-Fishing Section, which runs a Beginners’ 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.
