Hull & District Anglers’ Association

Angling Recommences on Association Waters with Important Conditions

In light of the government’s decision to allow angling from Wednesday 13th May, the Association have decided that its fisheries (not rivers) will open from 5am on Wednesday – with the following government rules and Association conditions. It is imperative that you follow these rules if you want to see angling continue long term. If there is an increase in coronavirus incidents the government have stated they will revert back to the total lockdown situation. Be aware that whilst the Brough complex will be open from 5am Wednesday, it will close on the following Friday at 6am (15th May) and will open again at 5am on Monday 18th May. This is because the Association already had work on the Brough site scheduled for that weekend.

  1. You should only travel to venues on your own or with members of your family. You must not share your vehicles with friends.
  2. You must at all times abide by the government’s social distancing guidelines (2 metres) and must not fish any closer than 15 metres from another angler on Association fisheries. Be sensible about walking around other anglers and keep your distance.
  3. Take hand sanitizer with you – this is now a rule to be able to use Association fisheries. Use it before opening/closing gates (our bailiffs may check that you have some in your possession). Use sanitizer if you handle any item on the fishery that may possibly be used by other anglers. Always use the sanitizer before and after using the Association toilets.
  4. Do not share items of tackle (for example landing nets) with other anglers and do not use the cabin at the west end of Hawk Pond. Keepnets are not allowed.

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.
