*** Association membership is now full for the 2019 / 20 season. New association books will be available this year, from approx mid May. This is the first time that we have a full uptake so early in the year, reflecting a growing reputation as a well managed club, with well stocked secure fisheries, including still waters that are otter fenced. ***

Membership rates are reviewed annually by the Association’s Management Board. The membership year runs from 16th June until 15th June but persons can join at any time during the year. The rates for 2019/20 are as follows:

Juniors (under 16 years)
Family (Member, spouse and children under 16 years)85
Retirement Pensioners45
Registered Disabled45


The price of a night permit is £225 per year for Gingerbread Lake,  £175 Swan Lake at Sandy and a new night ticket for McGregor Lake is being introduced for the 2019/ 2020 season, and will be priced at £100.  These permits must be obtained in advance by completing the relevant application form in the membership book to be forwarded to the Night Permit Secretary. All night permit numbers are limited, and are subject to a waiting list. In order to be placed on the waiting list, applicants must be existing members of the Association. Existing permit holders must renew their subscriptions before 30th April or risk losing their place on the list of permit holders.

The subscription year runs from 16th June although the statutory close season limits fishing on our river stretches until 14th March each year. Our still waters remain open all year round. Please note that we do not issue any part-year memberships.

In addition to the membership book, all new members will receive a key enabling them to open padlocks to gain vehicular access to some of our waters.
