Welcome to the Bury St Edmunds Angling Association


The Bury St Edmunds Angling Association was founded in 1938. Our aims are to provide and maintain angling, promote fellowship amongst anglers, organise friendly fishing competitions and to preserve and further the sport of angling generally. The club offers angling on four lakes and members have the right to fish all Association waters, subject to restrictions imposed from time to time.

BADWELL ASH 19/02/24: We are asking members not to go to Badwell Ash at this time, due to the carpark being wet and boggy from the amount of rainfall recently. We do not want the carpark churned up, nor anybody’s car getting stuck. The club thanks all for their cooperation.

Our Match secretary, Grant is busy sorting out the 2024/2025 season’s matches. What was formally known as the Thursday veterans league, will now be the Bury AA Thursday league. This will be open to all Bury AA members, irrespective of age. It gives all anglers an exciting opportunity to get involved. Anybody wishing to fish the matches, including the Sunday club matches can contact Grant on 07512588254. All species in our waters, including carp will count towards weights, other than Pike. We look forward to what the matches will bring in the new season.
