Spreading the cost:

If your membership fees total over £45 you can spread the cost by paying with 3 cheques, 2 of which are post-dated. Simply divide your total fee by 3 and send 3 cheques, i.e. Adult (£78) = one £26 cheque dated today and two £26 cheques dated one and two months hence, e.g. today’s cheque = 1st Jan, post dated cheques = 1st Feb and 1st Mar.

Standard Night fishing permit: For an additional £80 you can fish all of the above and also:
Night fish at Totham Pit all year round
Night fish at Slough House Farm all year round*
Night fish at Little London all year round
Night fish at Bog Grove between 1st October and 30th April
Use 3 rods between 1st October and 31st March on all venues

* The maximum length of a session on Slough House Farm is 2 days / 1 night followed by a 24 hour break between 1st Apr and 31st Oct and 3 days / 2 nights followed by a 24 hour break between 1st Nov and 31st Mar.
All other night fishing venues are 4 days / 3 nights followed by a 24 hour break from that fishery.

Members under the age of 16 cannot buy a night permit. These must be purchased on their behalf by a current adult night permit holder. Juniors must be accompanied by an adult night permit member while fishing between the hours of 10pm and 5am and fish in the same swim as this adult between these times.

Guest tickets: are available to non-members wishing to accompany a member to any fisheries. Members may only take one guest per session at a cost of £8 per day or £5 if the guest is under 16 years or age or qualifies for a concessionary membership of the Society. Guest tickets must be purchased in advance of fishing and do not give the guest permission to night fish.

Day tickets: are available on the Chelmer & Blackwater Canal only. Prices on the bank are £8 for adults, £5 for concessions and £2 for juniors. Day tickets purchased in advance of fishing are priced £7 for adults, £4 for concessions and £2 for juniors.  All of our other stillwaters are strictly members only – no day tickets allowed.

Day ticket anglers and guests may claim up to £8 discount on membership fees if they subsequently decide to join the society and the ticket is submitted with their application form.
