Fishing is not a sport, It’s a way of life

Milton Keynes is blessed with a wealth of still waters ranging from fertile balancing lakes to former clay and gravel pits. They can provide great sport which helps make an MKAA card such brilliant value. Carp large and small, big tench roach, bream, hybrids, pike, perch, chub and the occasional exotic are all part of the scene. Most are easily accessible and set in the parklands of which MK is so proud.

The Grand Union Canal wanders through Milton Keynes, MKAA’s ticket gives you access to some 9 and a half miles of quality opportunity. Its an ideal place for matches, several nationals have now been held on our section of the cut without a single dry net. So whether you are match fishing or just going for a dabble to develop your skills the cut can be the place to go. The canal does have some hidden treasures for the specimen angler. The canal has produced carp to a massive 35-2-0 from the canal, double figure cats and large eels have also been caught in the past. So when the boat traffic has quietened down why not sneak down and see if you can capture something a bit special.


Not only does the MKAA ticket give you access to a multitude of lakes and miles of Canal it also give you access to miles of superb river fishing too. Big Barbel, clonking chub, stunning pike are all there. Roach and perch are in abundance don’t be surprise if you pick up a river carp. Try trotting, the pole, feeder, the ledger all have been known to produce. In one match one angler caught 78lb of bream in a 4 hour match. In another match an angler broke the MKAA chub record not once but twice first fish was 6-14-0 which was shortly followed by a huge 7-8-0 fish.

LIKE TO GET INVOLVED? MKAA is always looking for people who would like to put something back into angling. It is a modern forward-looking association run by an executive committee all of whom are active anglers. If you would like to help shape the future of MKAA by giving some of your time there are plenty of opportunities ranging from bailiffing, fisheries work (netting/stocking), administrative (committee positions), match organisations, to just being an ambassador for MKAA.
