Welcome to the website for Shefford & District Angling Association Ltd.


SDAA controls the fishing rights on several excellent lakes and premier stretches of the rivers Great Ouse, Ivel and its tributaries in and around Bedfordshire, all available on a single club ticket.  The wide choice of venues and species available cater for both pleasure anglers and specimen hunters


In recent seasons, SDAA’s fisheries have produced an enviable list of specimen fish (catfish over 50lb, carp over 30lb, pike over 25lb, barbel over 12lb, bream and tench over 10lb , chub over 7lb, perch over 4lb and roach over 3lb).


Please explore our website to find details of all our waters, membership and other useful information.  The popular ‘News from the Bank’ section gives up to date information on catches and club news.  For a quick overview of SDAA waters and membership have a look at our current flyer (click here to open).

There will be a series of work parties held at Broom Lake on Thursday 22nd January, Friday 23rd January, Monday 26th January and Tuesday 27th January to cut back some of the trees around the lake.  The work parties will start at 8.30am and end at 3.30pm and all volunteers are welcome to attend.  The more volunteers that can attend will ensure we can complete more tasks, please bring suitable clothing and footwear, and heavy duty gloves.  The plan is to deal with pegs 1-20 first before moving on to pegs 21-42.  The lake will remain open for fishing but you must follow the instructions on the signs that will indicate the areas being worked upon and do not enter any taped off areas

Details and application forms can be found on the membership section of the website. 2014/15 membership and night permits are valid through to 15th June 2015.
