Hull & District Anglers’ Association

Important Notice

At last night’s delegates’ meeting a rule was passed regarding the consumption of alcohol on Association property.

“Alcohol consumption on Association property that results in unacceptable behaviour or lack of capability by any member will not be tolerated. Examples of bad behaviour would be causing annoyance to other anglers, being intoxicated to an extent that puts the member themself, other members, the fish, wildlife or Association property in harm’s way, or conduct that could be construed as bringing the Association into disrepute. Such behaviour could lead to the offender having their membership revoked and being banned”

Important Notice – Bethell’s Bridge, River Hull

Unfortunately, the fishing at Bethell’s Bridge (both sections – upstream of the Bridge and downstream) is no longer available to Association members. Considerable engineering work on the river banks in this area is taking place for the foreseeable future, so angling is not possible and the car park is also not available. You must not now access this private property for any reason.

We are hopeful that when all the work is completed that the owner may be prepared to allow us to renew our angling options.

We are presently looking to obtain a further stretch of the River Derwent, and hopefully will make an announcement in the near future

The main objective of HDAA is simply to provide a wide range of good value-for-money angling experiences.

The Association is constituted in a way that ensures that it is run ‘by the members, for the members’.

The day-to-day business is conducted by Officers appointed each year at the Annual General Meeting. To assist them in their decision making, they meet monthly with Delegates who are also elected at the AGM to represent a cross-section of the general membership. These monthly Delegates’ meetings are open to all members who may contribute to the discussions but may not vote on any proposals.

Members wishing to stand for any Officer or Delegate position must submit their nomination, countersigned by two other members, to the Secretary by the September Delegates’ meeting.

The Annual General Meeting held each October is open to all members, who will be asked to show their membership card when voting.

As an unincorporated organisation, all the assets of HDAA have to be held in the name of Trustees.

If you are interested in finding out what the Hull & D.A.A. is about; or if you would like to consider becoming a Delegate or an Officer and using some of your spare time to help improve the Association; or if you have any other questions that you may want answering, then please feel free to contact one of the Delegates or attend a Delegates’ meeting. Delegates meetings are held on the 2nd Monday of each calendar Month at the Willows Social Club, 695A Holderness Road, Hull. HU8 9AN.

Important Change – Windmill Pond Level Crossing Access

All H&DAA members intending to fish at Windmill Pond must make note of the new regulations for using the railway level crossing, which gives access to our property and fishery.

Network Rail has installed an Overlay Miniature Stop Light system, which improves safety for anyone using the crossing. It gives a visual and audible warning when a train is approaching.

This should be used as an addition to the user’s own care and vigilance when using the crossing and not as a substitute. It is crucial that users remain alert at all times when using the crossing.

When the GREEN light is showing the system indicates there is no train approaching and it is safe to cross. When the RED light is showing and an audible alarm is sounding, a train is approaching and you MUST NOT use the crossing.

If NO LIGHT is showing the system has developed a fault and the crossing must not be used, and the user should contact the telephone number displayed.
