Newton Abbot Fishing Association
is a coarse fishing club based in South Devon, UK.
The Association has the rights to over twenty waters in the Newton Abbot area as well as stretches of water on the River Isle and the Somerset Levels. They currently have in excess of 750 full members, numerous associate members and issue around 1200 day tickets annually.
The Association has been in existence since the early 1920's, with most of the waters being created as the excavation of the local clay and gravel deposits came to an end; primarily these workings were at the Rackerhayes complex just outside Newton Abbot. Over the years the club has gradually grown and acquired more waters in the surrounding area.
In the last ten years the membership numbers have consistently increased, there are more match teams associated with the club and the quality of the fish stock has dramatically improved; the waters are renowned for some truly specimen fish with tench to nearly 12lb, bream to 9lb, perch to 5lb and numerous carp that are 30lbs plus.
Day tickets and associate mebership is available on all their waters.
Newton Abbot Fishing Association runs a full programme of coarse fishing matches and inter-club matches.
