Welcome to the York & District Amalgamation of Anglers website. The YDAA was started in 1887 and now encompasses 20 individual clubs and has over 1000 members. We have access to over thirty stretches of prime Yorkshire river fishing on the Yorkshire Ouse, Derwent, Nidd, Foss, Rye and Seven; Pocklington, and Selby Canals; 11 miles of fishing on the Aire and Calder Canal and seven stillwaters, each with its own individual character. So, whatever type of fishing appeals you will find a water that will satisfy your needs. The association runs a busy match schedule throughout the year, including members, open and veterans matches on both our river sections and a few of our stillwaters.
From this site you can access details on all all our waters, including what species you may encounter, a few tips on how to catch them along with maps and directions on how to get there. You can buy or renew your membership online, and also purchase sixteen day holiday tickets. We have a fully functional message forums where you can chat about your recent angling exploits, and you can even register to have the newsletter sent out to you automatically via email. All the latest news and up to date information on waters and matches can be found on the announcements page. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any queries.
