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.
