The Buckingham & District Angling Association are a local welcoming club who are looking to promote fishing in our local community.

During the summer we hold a number matches and events at the club’s lake Woodfields near Preston Bissett. So why not come along and see what we are all about.

Access to the river behind Hyde Lane Lakes
A key is now required to use Staleys car park to gain access to our river venues behind Hyde Lane lakes. The key will cost £15 available from Hyde Lane Lakes Syndicate group. The cost is refundable when the key is handed back. Contact Nick Mullis on 07762 822499 to arrange pick-up. His address is 14 Bourtonville, Buckingham MK18 1AZ. You will need to provide your BDAA permit number or show your permit in order to obtain a key.
Reminder - Hyde Lane
The Hyde Lane Syndicate have advised the club that last month two BDAA members were found fishing on Hyde Lane lakes. Please note this venue is no longer on the BDAA permit and should not be fished unless you are a member of the Hyde Lane Syndicate.
