Renewal Tips

  • If there is more than one renewal for the same address, please supply just one stamped self addressed envelope.
  • If we don’t have an email address, or it has changed, can you please supply an email address (if you don’t have one a family member’s email address will suffice) with your membership renewal.
  • If you have paid by BACS can you please indicate that you have done so on the return part of your membership card.
  • Please send your membership renewal to Derek Graves directly, if you send it somewhere else, your renewal could be delayed.
  • Please do not send your identity card with your membership renewal. We do not need it.

Temporary Membership / Guest Tickets

The Society no longer issues guest fishing permits.

However, a temporary membership can be purchased, whereby a prospective member can fish any Society water for up to 24 hours at a time, up to 4 times per season.

Those fishing as a temporary membership must be accompanied by a current full member, and a full member can be accompanied by only one temporary member at a time.

Each temporary membership period costs £10 for adults, £5 for juniors/OAPs/registered disabled.

To apply for temporary membership contact Phil Townsend on 07879 854030 for more information. Please note: please allow for a minimum of 24 hours notice when applying for temporary membership.
