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

BROOM LAKE TRACK OPEN   Following today's work party the track around Broom Lake is now open to cars and small vans.  Please drive slowly (<5mph) taking great care at all times.  The track is unsuitable for long wheelbase and heavy vehicles.  Any vehicle higher than 2m must be left in the car park and not driven around the lake unless the owner has prior permission from the committee.

The SDAA General Committee has introduced the following rule that applies to all SDAA fisheries with immediate effect (July 2013):

·         All members (especially long stay anglers) must ensure their toiletry requirements are catered for in a way that does not cause any offence or hygiene hazard to other members or rightful users of the water and adjoining land.

·         All foul waste must be bagged and removed from the fishery by the member.

·         Any member found guilty of leaving litter or fouling the fisheries will have their membership terminated with no refund of their membership subscriptions.

Members are expected to respect the fisheries and the surrounding environment.  However, a small minority of members continue to leave litter, and use the fisheries and adjacent land as a toilet.  In spite of the committee’s numerous warnings these problems have shown no signs of improvement.

Please contact an Officer of the Club immediately if you witness this rule being broken.  If these problems persist, the SDAA committee will consider restricting fishing at the worst effected venues
