Junior anglers are very welcome within CDAA, in fact we actively encourage the recruitment and education of responsible young anglers. Up to the age of twelve, juniors are allowed to fish for free, provided they are accompanied by a responsible adult at all times. Between the ages of twelve and eighteen juniors have their own membership category that allows them to fish unaccompanied in most cases.
Juniors should also note that there are some waters where extra restrictions apply:
At Wirgol under 14's are allowed to fish with an adult member over 18 years of age present.
At More House Farm Fishery no under 14's are allowed to fish without an adult member over 18 years of age present.
At Gabriels Fishery no juniors under 16 are allowed to fish without an adult over 21 years of age present.
At Claygate Fisheries under 16's must be supervised by an adult.
At CDAA we run a junior day each June so that young anglers can come and have a go at angling, to see if they enjoy it. We have run Junior Day for may years now, so click on the tab above for further information and to book your place for the next event.
Each year the Club run a series of matches for junior anglers. The season begins in June with the Alistair Purves Memorial Trophy and then matches usually run fortnightly on a Saturday after that. In August we have The Frant Junior Shield and the matches culminate at the end of the summer with the First Diesel Junior Senior Challenge Cup.
All junior members are welcome although it would be wise to contact our Junior Match Steward Dave Cottington on 07568 548037 to reserve your place. Alternatively, you can email Dave at email@example.com
