Ringwood & District Anglers Association has existed for over 65 years and has grown to be the premier angling club in the South of England.
Ringwood & District Anglers’ Association (RDAA) has been in existence for over 65 years and has grown steadily from its humble beginning after the second world war.
The club has access to almost 13 miles of the legendary Hampshire Avon including The Royalty, Severals and Ibsley, plus more than 20 miles of the Dorset Stour including the outstanding Throop fishery, plus a choice of magnificent still waters including one of the top specimen Carp venues in the country.
Over the years the club has gained control or access to some of the finest fisheries in the south, a fact highlighted by the regular appearance of club members with specimen fish in the angling press.
As a club we are proud to provide a wide choice of primarily coarse fisheries, catering for all angling tastes, with many waters offering a very real chance of an exceptional specimen. A glance at our record list is proof of this, with many records being broken in the last few years.
The club is run by anglers, for the benefit of anglers, and this reflects in our reputation. Our excellent relationship with riparian owners has allowed us to negotiate many benefits including extended fishing times on the Avon and Stour, with night fishing on selected venues.
We consider the club to be very progressive with the purchase of two of the finest lake venues in the south (Hightown Lake and The Poulner Lake Complex) we have recently added the legendary Rockford Lake to our portfolio and view this as a major step in securing the clubs future.
