Welcome to the Liverpool & District Angling Association

Liverpool & District Angling Association (L&DAA) was established in 1911, making it one of the oldest angling associations in the UK. Its main base is in Maghull, though members come from throughout the North West of England. The L&DAA is made up from a number of smaller fishing clubs, such as the Liverpool dockers, Jacobs and Liverpool Angling Society, it also welcomes individual anglers to participate in open matches as well as supplying rights to fish their length.



The Association controls fishing on the Leeds-Liverpool canal from the Saracens Head in Halsall through to Liverpool City Centre, and organises a regular programme of matches throughout the year. The associated clubs also have their own match calendars, which involve fishing both the canal as well as other venues across England.

Membership is open and yearly permits are available from local tackle shops or by contacting the L&DAA Key contacts. The current year's fees are as follows -

  • Adult - £22
  • Concessionary (OAP, Disabled) - £17
  • Junior - Anglers under the age of 16 fish for free

Day Tickets are also available from local tackle shops or the bailiffs walking the banks. These cost £5 but you will be re-imbursed the amount for one full Day Ticket (e.g. £5) if going on to purchase an annual membership. (N.B. Proof of purchase is required for transfer of cost for Day Ticket to annual membership)

The L&DAA welcomes all anglers to fish their stretch of the canal, this diverse stretch of water even includes purpose built spots for the less mobile angler.
