Leek & District Fly Fishing Association was founded in 1972 by a group of anglers from Leek who were disappointed with the lack of fly fishing in the area, particularly river fly fishing. The Association first secured fishing on the river Churnet in 1973, and through good management and maintenance of this stretch of water, the Association’s membership and reputation started to grow.
It’s the strong relationships we maintain with our land owners, the National Trust and the Environment Agency that are essential to the ongoing success of our association. In 2012, LADFFA proudly celebrated its 40th anniversary. Our values remain unchanged – to provide affordable and quality fly fishing to our members. In return we ask our members to respect the waters we fish, the people who visit them and above all the environment of our quarry.
