Any angler buying 12 night permits is entitled to a free annual permit for the rest of the year.

All night permits must be booked at least one day in advance, and it is up to the angler to make contact before they go fishing.



A permit is available for BCAA members to take guests fishing with up to two rods for a 24 hour period from noon to noon. The permit costs £10 and includes night fishing. The BCAA member must hold the required night permit and is at all times responsible for the actions of the guest. The permit is available through the online shop and members should contact either Terry Duncalf or Mike Briggs (Shipton) or James Lynch (Staveley Lake) to ascertain that spaces are available before ordering.


We also sell Annual Night Fishing Permits which cover BOTH Staveley large lake AND Shipton Lake.

An annual permit costs £50 for the year from 1 January to 31 December, and covers BOTH waters. It can be obtained only from the Online Shop or from the General Secretary, Mike Briggs – see contact details below. Please send a Stamped Addressed Envelope with your application (please allow 7 days for reply) and in a covering letter please state:

  • your name;
  • your BCAA Membership number (you can find this in the back of your Year Book);
  • enclose a cheque or Postal Order for the correct amount (£50.00 for each permit), payable to “Bradford City Angling Association”.

Please note that Annual permit holders should ring either Terry Duncalf or Mike Briggs (Shipton) or James Lynch (Staveley) – see contact details – before going fishing, to make sure that spaces are available, and to avoid a wasted journey.


There are no toilet facilities at either Shipton or Staveley and anglers should therefore plan accordingly, especially when intending to night fish. If soiling of the grounds surrounding this fishery becomes a problem, then Night Permits may be withdrawn.
