Our Association is hugely oversubscribed every year. Our priority is to renew those existing members who respect our rules and values, occasionally some leave, occasionally some fail to comply and are ejected. Vacancies rarely appear, but when they do………..

We operate a yearly Application For Membership Form. This is available for completion between January 1st, and March 14th each year. It is not a “rolling list”, and after March 15th is deleted and starts from scratch the following year….

You are applying to be accepted onto a vetted waiting list; not simply placed on a numerical waiting list.

We are keen to uphold the highest angling standards, and will judge applicants accordingly. You may be asked to attend an interview.

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 2023/2024 are as follows:

Juniors (under 16 years)
Family (Member, spouse and children under 16 years)115.00
Retirement Pensioners70.00
Registered Disabled55.00

All night permit numbers are limited, and are subject to a waiting list.

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.
