Grantham Angling Association

Linconshires Oldest Angling Club
Est 1872

Our association was started in 1872, and the membership is open to all, no matter what their geographical location.
We have waters to suit most people, which include 4 streches of the upper Witham, about 4 miles of the Grantham canal, a selection of ponds and a reservoir, some of these hold specimen fish.
All our waters are members only.
In 1968 a group members started our fly fishing section, which now controls 17 kilometers of river that has some of the best wild Trout and Grayling fishing in Lincolnshire. GAAFFS membership is limited to 200, to find out more go to the GAAFFS website.


We use a laminated membership card, so when applying for membership you must have a passport size photo with you.
No photo no membership.
