Coronavirus update
 
RE-OPENING OF LAKES 
The Committee has agreed to re-open the Club’s lakes at 8.00am on Wednesday 13th May.

Members must follow Government guidelines at all times.

Members MUST be responsible for providing their own hand sanitiser, antibacterial gel, disinfectant wipes or soap and water to be used when opening and closing gates and toilets.

Members must keep their tackle close to them allowing 2m clearance for other anglers to pass behind. No tackle or bait to be shared.

There must be no congregating in the car parks or on the waters and only members from the same household can share a swim. Matches restart as in handbook on 24th June, see News Page.

Failure to adhere to the rules may result in you being asked to leave the fishery and persistent behaviour will result in the fishery being closed.

For those members who have not yet renewed their membership, we are waiving the £10 late fee 
 
The Committee
 
All classes of 2020/21 membership have now sold out.  12th July2020.
 

Billericay and District Angling Club was formed in 1957, and now is the largest in Essex, offering fishing on 31 lakes and stretches of the river Roding, Blackwater, Pant, Wid and Stour. BDAC is affiliated to The Angling Trust. It also supports and endorses the Essex Angling Watch.

We always aim to improve our fisheries, especially our freeholds and the provision of clean flush toilets is paramount, together with firm, safe swims. Although most of our waters, even the rivers contain carp, the average family angler will be pleased by the mixture of other species, unlike the predictability of many local day-ticket waters. Our most recent restocking took place in March 2020, 1,000+ roach and skimmers have gone into Asheldham and 1.000+ into Thoby Wood.. The club has successfully negotiated joining the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation Consortium, this now gives club members approx 12 miles of additional fishing.
