Welcome to The Sandwich & District Angling Association 

Work party at the Reed Ponds this Saturday 8.30 am start, all volunteers appreciated.

Corona Virus – Overnight Fishing In view of a number of issues recently in relation to overnight fishing, compounded by the fact that we cannot open our toilet facilities at present, your committee has decided that a registration scheme will operate forthwith, by informing Tom Chatfield on 07850-123263 beforehand. If you wish to fish overnight you will have to indicate how you intend to address your overnight personal hygiene and what type of camp if any you intend to use (Bivvie or Brolly Camp only). Please also provide the registration number of the vehicle that is to be left overnight. This scheme has been forced upon us because of the need to follow guidelines set out by the Angling Trust to enable us to continue fishing. Thank you for your tolerance in this respect to date, at this difficult time.


We have a constitutional rule to promote opportunities for angling in Sandwich and the surrounding area. Today our managed fisheries provide top class fishing in East Kent on two still waters.
These waters provide mixed fishing in a quality environment for all anglers, including families, match fishermen and specimen hunters.
We believe annual membership of SDAA provides quality fishing at fantastic value and we welcome all responsible anglers.
Originally looking after the The Reed Ponds we also used to have a thriving Sea fishing section.
We were responsible for the design and creation of Swallowbrook Lake back in 1992, the work of a few turning a green-field site into a gem of a Fishery for us all to enjoy.
