The YDAA Forums are the ideal place to chat about your days fishing on the Ouse or at Laybourne Lakes, to discuss the latest match results, or consider tactics for catching bream on the Selby Canal. There are also message boards for you to make reports about fishery problems or suggestions for this website; we welcome all you comments. YDAA staff may also use the forums to make announcements and organise events, so please keep a wary eye on them! Remember that these are public forums, so please be polite and courteous to all users at all times.

Registration for the forums is an automatic process. All you have to do is fill out your personal details, set and username and password, answer an easy security question and then wait for the confirmation email. Once you have received the email, it will contain a link for you to follow to verify your email details and make your account active.

Whilst there are a small number of boards available to all users, to access all the forum areas you must supply your current YDAA Membership Number either during the registration process, or later by editing your User Profile. This is a year-by-year rolling process, and you must keep your Membership Number updated to retain full forum access.

If you have any problems registering to use the forums please contact the forum administrator at
