It is with great sadness we report the passing of former DAA Secretary and stalwart Mr Marshal Davies.  Marshal was instrumental in making our association the great success it is today and he will be dearly missed by all who knew him.  Our thoughts are with Rhoda, Nanette, Melvyn and Ewan at this difficult time.




The Dolgellau Angling Association Annual General Meeting will be held on Friday 15th February 2019 commencing 7:30pm at Dolgellau Rugby Club.
All members are welcome to attend, with "Local" members eligible to vote on club matters.

On Sunday 12th July, Dolgellau Angling Association held its annual locals competition at Llyn Cynwch.

Weather conditions favoured both competitions, Fly fishing in the morning and bait competition in the afternoon however the fishing proved to be more challenging than expected.


Fly Competition

In the juniors section, Sion Davenport won with a bag of six fish weighing 9lb and in the seniors Rob Redman won with his bag of five fish weighing in at 8lb 11oz, beating two other bags of five fish. Dylan Davenport won the heaviest fish at 2lb 11oz.

In the seniors, Darren Vaughan beat off two others to win the heaviest bag with his  four fish at 6lb 12oz.
