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.

Latest club news

BARROW LAKE CLOSURE 14/12/23: There is a shoot happening at Barrow on Thursday 14th December. The landowner has requested for the lake to be closed. Please do not visit the lake. 

BAIT BOATS: The club are allowing the use of bait boats on Water Lane. This will be a trial until the end of the 2023/2024 season. Please do not use bait boats on any other association water.

The last month has been a busy one on the lakes. There have been plenty of fish being caught, particularly at Middle Reservoir and Badwell Ash. The veterans league came to a conclusion on Thursday with Grant Humphreys winning the trophy. Kevin Peck managed to catch one of Barrow’s larger residents, being a 15lb 11oz common carp. October and November should bring some good fishing, so we encourage all anglers to get out if they can. 



The latest and final vets match of the year (05/10/23) took place at Barrow lake. With the points table looking tight, this would prove to be an exciting match for the anglers involved. Grant Humphreys took top spot with 31lb 14oz. Dave Williams finished on 29lb 11oz, putting him second. Third place was taken by Andy Walker, weighing in with 24lb 8oz. This meant that this years overall winner and taking the trophy was Grant Humphreys finishing on a 385 points. Andy Hardy finishing 2nd with 375 points and Rob Parnell 3rd with 347 points. Well done to all the vets that have fished the matches this year and congratulations to Grant! There has been some good examples of angling this year! Anybody wishing to fish club matches or if you  have any questions, you can contact Grant on 07512588254.
